Serving Our Community And World In Christ's Name

Daily Devotional

Monday October 16, 2017
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 

The Apostle Paul, begins this letter to the Corinthian church praising God for the comfort and strength God gives to the faithful in times of trouble. The gifts we receive from God are not only for ourselves but for us to share with others in need. In this way God's loving care multiplies geometrically through us for the transformation of the world!  Henri Nouwen wrote an excellent book about this "The Wounded Healer."

When have you been a source of comfort and healing for others? Today will you praise God for giving you the comfort you need and welcome God's healing work through you?

May praise to God be your prayer today as you receive healing grace and are a source of healing for others!
