2 Corinthians 1:5, 7
You can be sure that the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ…We are confident that as you share in suffering, you will also share God’s comfort. (NLT)
These are great verses. The NLT really brings out the point that I am making—that those who suffer for Christ will surely be comforted by God. When we think of the Christians who are tortured for Christ, in places like North Korea, these verse are comforting, and they bring us some peace. We never like to think about the pain of torture, but let us believe that God is good and He will bring comfort to the suffering in His own way.
I wish there was more that I could say, but I can’t think of anything. If you have a story of how God comforted you I would love to hear it.
