Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/11/09

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

“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 will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”     (2 Cor. 1:3-4)

When troubles come, may we remember to bless and praise the Lord God Almighty, for He is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Father of all mercies and compassion, the God of all comfort. It is He who comforts us in our affliction with His merciful kindness and steadfast love, and with the comfort He gives us we are to comfort others in their affliction as He comforted us.

May the Lord comfort you with His tender mercies, and may you comfort others as He comforted you.
