As we experience the redeeming comfort of Jesus Christ, we have something to offer to those who are broken around us. The problem behind our pain is too great for simple answers, but we have an answer in the person and work of Jesus Christ. As He has redeemed you, look for ways that you can use His power in your life in order to be a part of the redemption of others. Point them continually to His mercies.
