”Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.” -2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
God is always a source of comfort. He comforts us because He loves us. He not only is our source of comfort in trying times here on earth, but He also gives us comfort about eternity.
There are many people in the world who are unsure about what happens after we die. Some believe it’s just the end and they fear the end. Some are not so sure and that doubt causes fear. We need God, our Heavenly Father who loves us, to give us eternal comfort. I find it very reassuring to know that physical death is not the end of the story. We can find comfort in knowing that we will spend eternity with the One who created us, in a place of peace and beauty. We don’t have to fear anything. He comforts and strengthens our hearts here on earth, and He provides us comfort about what happens once we leave this earth. Be comforted, my friends.
