We live in a world where we are surrounded by those who are looking for comfort.
Our cities and our neighborhoods are filled with people who go day to day searching for a way to come to terms with the pain and the brokenness of life. Some seek comfort in money, in their jobs, or their relationships. Others try to dull thee pain through the use of drugs and alcohol.
Just to be clear, the church is not free from the pain and brokenness of life either. In fact, Jesus is clear that in this world there will be trouble (John 16:33). And yet everyday, people with stories of tremendous suffering continue to find comfort and peace through the Gospel. Over the next few weeks we're going to explore several aspects of the Christian faith in order to demonstrate the source of this comfort.
