How Are We Comforted?

2 Corinthians 1:5 (ESV)

For we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.

2 Corinthians 1:5 (alternate translation)

For as the sufferings of Christ abound for us, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.

But what does that comfort look like? We receive comfort through Christ, but how? I take comfort knowing what Christ has done through the gospel for us.
