We don’t have to look far to see who is suffering. The world is crying it is just that many don’t know who they are crying out for is Jesus. This is where we come in and share the love, compassion, mercy and grace of a loving Father who desperately wants a relationship with each of us. We need to be in tune with our Father’s heart so He can use us to bring others to Him.

Amen, Sheila. You are so right. We all yearn for more than this world can provide, but without knowledge of that personal relationship with Jesus, we try to fill that void with things that will never satisfy. Father, lead our steps into perfect alignment with You.

Thank you for this informative post! I think when we suffer through hard times, God opens our hearts to be more compassionate to other’s suffering!

I love this verse – It’s so important also to comfort others. Through the years, God has shown me how important it is. Great study.

I love how the Body is designed to comfort one another, both believers and unbelievers. Such a grace gift!

I can honestly say that the comfort of the Holy Spirit is the most meaningful and steadfast comfort I receive.

Glory to God. So much we can get from worshipping God because we cast all our burdens unto him in prayers and worship, He will comfort us, guide us and lift all forms of live’s burdens from us. I have been blessed today.

The love the thoroughness and structure of the post. It’s so amazing how we are able to continually gain greater depth of knowledge in the bible the more we read, break apart, look in context, and apply relevance.

Wow this is a great tool! For some the idea of reading the Bible can be daunting, but this gives simple, step by step instructions that would help anyone who is unsure of where to start! Will definitely have to share this with my youth group 🙂

“To know God’s comfort requires that we first become acquainted with affliction.” It’s true that unless we have depth ourselves, we have no empathy to give others in the midst of their suffering.

Such a redemptive gift to be able to extend love and grace to others because of what we’ve walked through!
