Christianity is not comfortable. If you are comfortable in Jesus, you are doing it wrong.
What does it mean for God’s word to die inside of you? Could it mean that we must release the God that we have created? The God that we have fashioned in our own image? That God needs to die. The God that we’ve got all figured out, the God that votes like we do, the God that looks like we do, that talks like we do. That God needs to die inside of us so that we can have some fruit.
When we have God all figured out, then God belongs to us and not the other way around. But when that seed dies in your heart and begins to take root, then you belong to Jesus.
