Paul’s thanksgiving (chapter 1)

Paul began with this cry to the blessed God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  God comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we can comfort others.  We share in Christ’s suffering as well as his comfort.  Paul was sharing in the sufferings and comforts of the Corinthians, just as they would share the same sufferings and comforts with Paul.
