The Comforting Christ

THROUGHOUT the ages the sweet presence of the Christ has brought comfort to those who have responded to its healing message. So universal is the mission of the Christ that it has blessed people of all nations, irrespective of race or creed. Whatever of consolation is breathed through the Old Testament has resulted from the fact that the early prophets, patriarchs, and poets, whose words are recorded therein, had been touched by the Christ-spirit. This accounts for the comfort so many derive today from the Psalms, and from the words of Isaiah, Daniel, and other prophets and heroes of those early days.

When Jesus of Nazareth was on earth, he imparted comfort wherever he went. His understanding and manifestation of the eternal Christ, the spiritual idea of God, brought to humanity boundless blessings. To the sick he gave health; to the pain-racked surcease from suffering; to the repentant sinner hope, consolation, and courage; to the self-satisfied, the wounds that saved the receptive from impending danger, then the balm that healed the wounds. The New Testament records in detail those proofs of healing.
