Jesus called the Holy Spirit the “Comforter,” and the apostle Paul writes that the Lord is “the God of all comfort.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-7 ESV – 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. 6 If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. 7 Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 ESV – 16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
You are the source and the author of comfort, of solace, of encouragement. You don’t just give out worthless platitudes, but You give eternal comfort and hope through Your grace. You saved us, You rescued us, You gave us an eternal home. And because of this assurance, we can extend comfort to others. We can share Your Word, Your Truth.

One thought on “Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 24”
I certainly felt that comfort and encouragement as I visited with my mom last week!
