“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God” – 2 Cor 1:3-4
Here in these verses the key word is “so”! We are comforted so we can comfort others through the comfort we have received. God’s transforming work always wants to break over the banks of our lives and lead to transformation around. In fact that is a indication (litmus test) for true gospel change.
