Matthew 10:1-8; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7
The God of All Comforts

Today we are back in our study of the Life of Christ and looking at Jesus' preparation for the Disciples going on their mission to reach the "lost sheep of Israel." The disciples have to face an obstacle, potentially a dangerous one, who will help them and who will pray for them? We have regular obstacles that we have to face in life but we were never meant to face them alone - we are to rest in God for help and we are to turn to our brothers and sisters in Christ and share our trial. It is in our trials that we are built up and comforted and it is these same trials that allow us to be a benefit to each other.
