comfort check

I needed this today. To my shame, I have been growing comfortable. The joys of this world have been looking very desirable to me recently...a big house, nice clothes, comfortable relationships. Yet my Savior died that I would not be held in by the cares of this present world. He paid His life, that I might be as uncomfortable as He was.

Recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, sometimes being publicly exposed to reproach and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property . . .

. . . since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one.

Hebrews 10:32-34

The Cross.Quote fits perfectly with this.

May we all be strangers and pilgrims desiring a better country for our Great Savior.
