If you are comfortable with who God is and what He is doing, you’re doing it wrong.
“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” (C.S. Lewis)
The God of the Bible does some really unexpected things. God does not fit into a comfortable. He is not safe. He is not tame. He is good, but if you feel entirely safe and comfortable around your god: Be afraid. Be very afraid.
