Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

“…who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble…” (2 Cor 1:4). The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He gives us peace and quiet confidence as only God can. But comfort doesn’t exist just for us to enjoy; it exists for us to pass on to others. Our primary job after the moment of salvation is to save others by inviting them into the Kingdom of God. And our primary job from the moment God’s Holy Spirit comforts us is to do our best to comfort others – with His help. God calls us His vessels because salvation and comfort are supposed to pass through us. Are you passing everything you’ve received along to everyone in your path?

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your Holy Spirit! Thank You that He comforts me in my times of need. Help me to comfort others with the confidence that comes from the many times You have comforted me!
