2 Corinthians 1:5

5 Because Christ suffered so much for us, we can receive so much comfort from him.

2 Corinthians 1:5 In-Context

3 Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! He is the Father who is compassionate and the God who gives comfort.
4 He comforts us whenever we suffer. That is why whenever other people suffer, we are able to comfort them by using the same comfort we have received from God.
5 Because Christ suffered so much for us, we can receive so much comfort from him.
6 Besides, if we suffer, it brings you comfort and salvation. If we are comforted, we can effectively comfort you when you endure the same sufferings that we endure.
7 We have confidence in you. We know that as you share our sufferings, you also share our comfort.
