How Can We Show that We Love Christ More Than Comfort?

How Can We Show that We Love Christ More Than Earthly Comfort?

Practically, we can show that we love Christ more than comfort by not balking at uncomfortable situations where God is calling us to obey: speaking to our family members or friends about the gospel, sacrificing our time and energy to help someone in need, choosing to get up in the spend time reading and praying over God’s Word in the morning instead of that time reading our social media feed in bed, giving sacrificially to missions even when it means we or our children will not have all of the comforts or conveniences of the world.

God is the “God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” (2 Cor 1:3b-5)
