(Un)Comfort(able)

I was just thinking tonight about God’s word and came to the conclusion that God’s Word is always a comfort and yet it will never make us comfortable. The promises God makes in His Word are comforting even while His Word makes us uncomfortable, by confronting our sin and pushing us outside our comfort zone. I just wanted to share that brief thought with you. I plan on doing several substantial posts on a Christian worldview in the near future, so stay tuned.

  1. Very interesting and true thoughts…You need to check out the hymn I posted on a few days ago it is called Every Promise, it is a favorite!

  2. Interesting.

    I have found the old-fashioned distinction between law and gospel to be helpful in my reading of the Bible. The Law, the moral imperatives contained in Scripture, always leaves me uncomfortable. The Law drives me relentlessly to Christ. The Gospel, the places in Scripture where promises are made to me based on Christ’s work, is always a comfort to believers.

    I’m looking forward to your worldview posts.
