Quick Word from Pastor Rob

What does it mean to experience comfort?  Basically the idea is to soothe in distress.  I think all of us could use some of that right now!  It has only been a little over two weeks since we started social distancing on a large scale but it seems longer, a lot longer.

2 Corinthians 1: 3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort”.  No matter what life throws at us we can be certain that God is there to help.  He will help us with our needs, the battles we face, and the fears we have.

Due to the situation we are in its normal to feel vulnerable and lonely.  The virus is invisible and we are separated from one another.  It is a different world right now and so uncomfortable in many ways.  But Jesus restores comfort to our hearts and minds with His promise in John 14:1, “Let not your heart be troubled you believe in God believe also in me”.

Comfort offers hope.
