Today’s devotion is based on 2 Corinthians 1:3,4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 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.”
In this extraordinary year’s Lenten season, we remember the pain of Christ suffering on the cross. We will be led to the forgiveness of our sin and true peace by the suffering of Christ. We can put all our anxieties and troubles on him. You feel limited if you rely on yourself or focus on human actions. But the Scripture points out that Christ, who rose from the dead, is living with you now.
Jesus Christ understands and accepts all our hardship and suffering because he has experienced all kinds of unreasonable suffering. That is why we again receive hope to live during this Lenten season. Your prayer in suffering brings you to joy and peace by the grace of the risen Christ.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for sending your Son so that we can be free of your deserved wrath, for we are truly, poor miserable sinners. Thank you, Lord, for all the blessings you pour down on us every day. Please help us to live better lives so that all we come into contact with will see your glory. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
