Have you ever had a place where you really felt at home? Maybe it was at a job, or a friend's house. Maybe it was at school or church. Regardless of where it was, I know that you always looked forward to being there.
When we constantly seek outside satisfaction, the worst type of comfort sets in. We become complacent in our walk with Christ. We become the rich young man; we want the benefits of a relationship with Jesus without having to follow Him... without the sacrifice.
Many of us have spent the extent of our Christian experience living a morally better life than others, and that is it. We haven't lived in the freedom of being made alive.
