Chain You to My Body
There is a comfort in knowing God. I know that there are some who don’t believe in God and who believe that the comfort we feel is the comfort of the weak and addle-headed.
Well, yes, there are believers in Christ who ARE weak and addle-headed — just as their are non-believers who are weak and addle-headed.
But to believe in the Something we cannot fully see, touch or feel — well, it seems a bit crazy. I know, I get that.
But it also takes a lot of strength. It takes courage. It takes dedication.
Think of Billy Graham, G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis, Martin Luther King, and others like them … weak and addle-headed? No way, no how.
It takes strength to be a believer. But it’s not the kind of strength that allows you to take someone down with your words, to debate them into the ground and punish them with a verbal beating. That’s not how you lead your loved one to the Comfort of God.
If there someone that you love who doesn’t know God the way you know God, if there is someone you wish could feel His loving arms and comfort — don’t try and talk them into it. Love them, show them, BE for them what God is to you.
And if you must use words, sing.
