Re:Verse passage – 2 Corinthians 7:5-16 (day seven)
For though I caused you sorrow by my letter, I do not regret it; though I did regret it—for I see that that letter caused you sorrow, though only for a while…2 Cor. 7:8
A significant part of our Christian walk is uncomfortable. Sometimes we imagine life with God as sinking into soft pillow, but often the way is defined by God making us uncomfortable. Either by a letter from Paul or a heavy conscience God is going to bring us to a point of repentance. Unfortunately, we do not get there on our own, and it’s never comfortable.
True freedom in life is found when you are forgiven of your sins by the blood of Jesus Christ in repentance. We must confront our sin, wrestle with it, and finally hand it over to God to be at peace. That peace though comes at an uncomfortable price: a confrontation with yourself. The process is sorrowful, but joy comes in the morning.
