Affliction and Comfort
S - If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. (2 Corinthians 1:6 ESV)
O - Paul uses affliction and comfort as if they were connected. He is telling them that through his toil in serving them even though it may bring affliction, ultimately it bring the church comfort.
A - All that the Lord calls me to do in my life I must see the fact that it may be work and there may be hard times, but the purpose is to minister to those he brings in my life.
P - Father, following after the sacrifice your Son made for me, what you have called me to do is far short. May I stay the coarse you have called me to.
