All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfort—we get a full measure of that, too. 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
God rescued us from a pit of despair for a reason. That reason wasn’t to kick our feet up, sit back and say “Well, I got mine”. God took us out of the mess we were in and into a new life to serve Him and others. Our Salvation is free with no strings attached. Now we are called to a greater purpose. We are called to provide comfort.
Every now and then we hear someone say “God has healed me, I don’t need to do anything. I’m Good”. God does heal us. But He heals us for a purpose. He heals us to be of service. And if God has healed us, then the next logical question should be “where is the fruit of God’s healing?” When we are of comfort to others, we are demonstrating the love God has for us. God’s harvest is plentiful and the seeds we sow in others will grow even more fruit.
We are the people who were comforted when we walked through the doors of recovery. Now we are called to comfort those who are walking through those same doors for the first time. We are called to be of comfort to others. Comforting others with that same comfort we received is how we Glorify God and all that he has done in our lives.

Father God, you gave me comfort in a time of despair. You brought me to a fellowship of love and support. Thank you for that time of healing. Now it’s time for me to provide comfort to others who are hurting. Give me grace and compassion as I walk this faith journey with others. Help me to love and you have loved. I pray this in your Son’s name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
