“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 afflictions, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we are comforted by God.” 2 Cor. 1: 3-4. ESV
1. Three questions help reveal the functioning idols of my heart. Where do I go for comfort? What do I rely on? What do I hope in?
2. Lord, please make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel, who is learning to turn to You for comfort and then live for Your glory by comforting others with the comfort that comes from You.
3. Lord, please make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel who is learning to rely and hope in You and so live for Your glory.
