Christ Is The Answer

We all need to be reminded that Jesus is our comfort. 2 Corinthians 1:3b says God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort.

When Harry Lauder, the great Scottish comedian, received word that his son had been killed in France, he said, “In a time like this, there are three courses open to man: He may give way to despair and become bitter. He may endeavor to drown his sorrow in drink or in a life of wickedness. Or he may turn to God.”

Christ is the answer, no matter what we face.

Are you afraid? Read Isaiah 51:2, “I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear? 

Do you have troubles? Read Psalm 119:50, Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles

Do you need hope? Read Romans 15:4, For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope.

Are you mourning a loss? Read Matthew 5:4, Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. 

Are you worried about death? Read Psalm 24:4, Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me

Can you think of anyone who needs comforting? Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ and comfort them today!

Have a blessed day!

  6. Thank you Cyndi for your encouraging words and the beautiful song. Our county has lost many teens this year due to several car accidents and I cannot fathom what their parents have been through and will go through this next month. Also, a young teen in the area just lost her father on Thanksgiving due to brain cancer. My heart breaks for “anyone” that has lost their family or friend. ~Lisa~

Blessed with new healthy Grandchildren that bring us more joy then can be imagined, as you well know, many blessing for yours and your new one to come. God is the source of all Love,Comfort and Understanding. Celebrate his coming, Blessings and Love , Terri
