The world can be a very uncomfortable place, from the pressures at home and work to worldwide issues like poverty and war. So naturally, we seek out those things that will make us feel comfortable and secure.
But true comfort isn’t necessarily found in lounge chairs and lattes. And when we focus solely on our comfort, we miss out on an enormous aspect of the life God designed for us. Sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone. But how far do we step? And why would we want to?
In this 4-part series, Pr. Rich teaches us the importance of stepping out of our comfort zone. And we see that the only way to experience the true comfort found in Jesus Christ is to make sure we get uncomfortable enough to do what he has called us to do.

After all, we live in an often uncomfortable world. But when it comes to the Christian life, comfort isn’t necessarily the goal. In fact, Jesus told his disciples to get out of their comfort zone and reach out to the world around them. He wanted them to get uncomfortable.
