The God of All Comfort

July 12th, 2009 · No Comments

Dr. Hartmann explores a wonderful passage from 2 Corinthians 1:3-7.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation. (2Cor.1:3-7)

He then goes on to was a very broad brushed outlined some of the types of suffering Christians experience, including suffering that is a result of the fall, the effects of our own sins, and suffering that is a result of obedience to God.

Dr. Hartmann issues exhortation to embrace suffering, as we keep our vision focused upon the future glory that will be revealed according to Romans 8:18-22.

Additionally, in light of the amazing love of God which motivated him to create us for a future glory that is to be revealed within us when we see Him- we should seek to purify ourselves even as He is pure according to 1 John 3:1-3.
