The church is made up of people we may not always get along with or agree with—but that’s something God can use for our good. Despite our differences, the Holy Spirit unites us and works in our hearts and communities for our good and his glory.
In the second chapter of Uncomfortable, McCracken reminds us that the Christian faith is a faith that calls us to the foot of the cross. This is a difficult thing to accept. This message focuses on the uncomfortableness and sacrifice that the Christian faith calls us to embrace, and the Savior, Jesus, who provides the perfect example.
American culture is a culture of comfort. It’s being sold to us everywhere we look. We’re encouraged to do what we want, when we want, with whomever we want. If something is uncomfortable, we want to avoid it at all costs. The Christian faith, though, is just that: uncomfortable. This four-week series, based on Uncomfortable by Brett McCracken, will help people embrace, understand, and see the beauty and hope in the challenging realities of being part of God’s people.
