Uncomfortable Christian

1:11 “For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end you may be established; that is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.”

Paul yearned to “be comforted” and subsequently implied that he was in discomfort. One of the central beleivers from which Christians have drawn inspiration for over two thousand years was someone who was not comfortable as a Christian.

  1. Hi… I enjoyed this post as well of some of the others you’ve written. They are good food for thought. I’m glad you found me as I enjoy reading things that make me think:) God bless and I’m going to subscribe now. ~Jen

  2. We put the apostles and OT Prophets on a pedastel, when actually they are just like you and me. Frail, Human, Mortal and full of mistakes and insecurities. This is the Beauty of the Bible. That God uses all kinds of people with all their issues and faults to bring His message to the people. This is the uniqueness of the Bible that seperates it from other books. Paul for me is one of my fav authors in the Bible and his words and frailties draw me closer to Christ.

    RESPONSE: Thanks for stopping by Sam. Your point was very much worth making. Paul has always appealed to me for the very same reason. But, I’ve certainly fallen into that category of folks who put biblical people on a different level than myself. But, to grasp the true power of grace, we need to identify with the emotions exhibited by Peter when he disowned Jesus, amongst all of the other snapshots of fallen humanity. They are us.
