12-30: The Benefit of Suffering

1 Corinthians 1:3-7 (NIV)

3 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanksgiving

4 I always thank my God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge— 6 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed.

Notes:

1. Our comfort OVERFLOWS so we may pass it on to others.

2. We suffer for the SALVATION of others.

3. We can only experience comfort when we are EMPTY.
