We are Called to Love, not Comfort and Safety — A Quote by Stasi Eldredge in “Becoming Myself”

“As followers of Christ, we are not called by God to live a life where safety is the highest goal. Nor is comfort. You knew this already. But dang. I still struggle with accepting it. The highest goal is love. Always. Well then. In order to be loved and to love, we cannot sit this life out. We have to engage with those folks God has brought us… Christianity is not a promise to enjoy a life without pain nor to be given a shortcut through it. It is a promise that pain, sorrow, sin — ours and others’ — will not swallow us, destroy us, define us, or have the final word. Jesus has won the victory. And in him so have we.”
