BE A COMFORTER

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (CEB) “May the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ be blessed! He is the compassionate Father and God of all comfort. He’s the one who comforts us in all our trouble so that we can comfort other people who are in every kind of trouble. We offer the same comfort that we ourselves received from God.”

In this “me first” society where selfishness reigns supreme, God stands alone as the one bastion of selfless comfort. He reaches into the lives of those in need when called upon to bring peace to a restless soul and comfort in the midst of pain. There is a significant reason for His actions. It is these actions we are to emulate in a lost and dying world. For by those actions the world will see that there IS a God and that He DOES care. Mere words are insufficient. Mere words can tend to be meaningless. Unless they are followed up by corresponding action they carry no weight. Seriously, how many times have we told someone we would pray for them and forgotten. How much more powerful is it to stop right where you are and pray for them immediately. Who cares what people around you may think. God is at work. Comfort is God’s way of touching lives. People can see God in others when they provide comfort. We are given comfort by God in our distress so we might be able to empathize with the plight of others and be God’s hand extended to offer solace.

Being selfless is not an easy thing to be. In a selfish world, selflessness is all but ignored. Except for Christians who seek to be such, it would not exist at all. I try to be selfless, yet find myself falling far short of the mark so many times. It is still my goal as I strive to be a little more like Jesus each day. Will you join me in my quest? Don’t give up, surrender.  Surrendering to God will change you in ways you never expected. It will turn your world upside down if you let it. Want excitement in your life? Serve God.

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
