If you've gone for Church for a long period of time or have been following Jesus for many years there is a state of existence that you or I can find ourselves in; it's a place that is easy to get to but dangerous to be in. It's a place of partaking but not participating. Partaking is receiving for yourself , but participating is revealing to others. It's easy for us to partake of God's goodness but not participate in revealing that goodness to the lost. It's easy for us to partake of God's love but not participate in extending that love to the people in our lives. It's easy to partake of God's forgiveness for your own sins but not participate in choosing to forgive the people that have sinned against you. See we were never meant just just partake of God's love but partner with Him and participate in unveiling and unleashing His love to a lost world. We are the bridge for people.
2 Corinthians 1 : 3 - 7
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us.
