Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 1:3


1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ - A solemn and beautiful introduction, highly suitable to the apostolical spirit. The Father of mercies, and God of all comfort - Mercies are the fountain of comfort; comfort is the outward expression of mercy. God shows mercy in the affliction itself. He gives comfort both in and after the affliction. Therefore is he termed, the God of all comfort. Blessed be this God!

    Vs. 4 Our God has supplied us comfort through the pages of the Bible. Many of the persons in the Bible serve as an example to us. As we read their examples and overcome trials we can be a source of encouragement to others. May we heed the counsel Matt. 28:19,20 and share the good news.

    Verse 11 highlights the strength of the power of prayer. Here, Paul states that one way to help others is to pray for them. Just as prayer helped Peter escape unjust imprisonment, when we offer heartfelt prayer in the behalf of others, Jehovah God will certainly take notice.
