In order to really reach the lost and hurting there has to be a certain feeling attached to a believers emotions – uncomfortableness.
Comfort breeds complacency, and complacency is a splinter of pride that destroys our witness, testimony, and our get up and go.
If we sit idle consumed with worldly wants and desires, not only do we create a Petri dish of sin, but worse, we do the opposite of what Christ wants/commands, which is to be in a compulsive state (I Cor 9:16) of pursuing (Matt 29:19).
When we are uncomfortable we know we are reaching outside of ourselves, trusting in Christ, to make a difference in people’s lives that would normally be out of our sphere of everyday living; e.g. sex-trafficked prostitutes, street kids, drug addicts, etc.
