All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NLT
Our merciful Father is the source of all comfort for us. He sends the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to us. Through the Holy Spirit, God comes close to us to minister to us our spiritual and material needs. The Holy Spirit gives us comfort when we go through tribulations. We are able to face problems with a calm attitude. We can pass on the comfort we have received to those that are going through similar situations. We know what it was like and the pain we suffered. We can bring words of encouragement to bring comfort to those that are suffering as we did.
