Comfort My People

Isaiah 40:1

Comfort, comfort my people,
says your God.

Bomb and suicide attacks are common these days. Many have lost their families and relatives. Many have offered words of comfort, support, and prayers to the grieving families.

It would be difficult for the grieving families to forget and forgive.

But as Christian, we are called to forgive and love.
We are not to let revenge or hatred rule our hearts.

Of course, there would always be pains and sadness. It is just impossible to find words to express our feelings after such cruel deeds.

But we continue to come to church in a very humble way. It is our place for prayers, lamentations, hope, comfort and love. Here we meet our Comforter and Saviour.

Let us thank God for His comfort.
Let us use His comfort to comfort others.

And let us pray for brothers and sisters
who are still experiencing
the fear and pain of terror and loss.
