Jesus told His disciples “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 "In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also” (John 14:1-3). When Jesus came to Jericho there was a blind man by the name of Bartimaeus who cried out to Him for mercy. Mark tells us that “And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee: (Mk. 10:49, KJV). Newer translations ren- der this as, “Take courage, stand up! He is calling for you” (NASB). The comfort that Jesus gives is that which brings courage. It allows the Christian to cope with all that life can do to him. There is the comfort that helps. We see this in Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians when he writes “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all com- fort” (II Cor. 1:3). Then he adds “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ” (II Cor. 3:5). This comfort that is given to us is only through Christ. Because Jesus suffered greatly He is able to comfort us in all our afflic- tions. One man (explaining how his mother had lost a son) said of her, “that is where she got her soft eyes and that is why women rushed to her when they lost a child.” People who lost a child knew that this woman under- stood the hurt they were experiencing and could offer them comfort. Likewise Jesus is the One who under- stands all our trials and tribulations and that is why peo- ple rushed to Him when they suffer. “For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted” (Heb. 2:18). “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15). And finally the name of Jesus is a conquering name. When John saw the opening of the first seal (Rev. 6:2), he wrote, “And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.” Later in the book see Jesus described and we are told that “His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name writ- ten that no one knew except Himself” (Rev. 19:12). Jesus conquered and he is still conquering today.
