"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God." - 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 ESV
We serve a God who loves us and cares for our every need. His comfort, for us, is immeasurable! He shows his love for us by the sacrifice of his own (his only) son, Jesus Christ. It is through this sacrifice that we know God loves us and cares for us in our hurt. He gave all so that we may be comforted in our hurt and affliction.
Whatever you go through this week, whether you think it small or great, know that our God LOVES YOU and cares for you. Your hurt, is his hurt, and through hurting we grow to know God more by the measure of pain He felt in giving his son to die on a cross. As a result, though pain lingers, we are able to understand deeper the heart of God and in turn, help others through their pain.
Show love to everyone today, for you never know who may be hurting and in need of God's love. Show love...show Christ!
