We are called to be ministers of peace, and comforters of others in 2 Cor 1:3-4. Christ both told us that obedience was the way to peace and comfort  (John 14:15-21), and demonstrated that himself (John 14:30-31.  There is much that is uncomfortable in being obedient.  Sometimes it is even painful especially when reaching out to the hurting and the lost.  There are mistakes, and you might find yourself in situations you would rather avoid.  Some of the 'rules' may not make sense.  And sometimes it just seems too hard.  Staying in for the 'long haul' becomes tiring and 'hanging in there' continuing to follow those commands can seem overwhelming.  Life is not always easy, even if we wish it so.  There are easier ways than following in Jesus' footsteps, ways that less draining and 'more fun', so you have to ask yourself, "Is it worth it?  Is being obedient to the Word of God and to the commands of Christ worth it?"  Listen as Deacon Josh encourages us to take a look at Christ’s example, and find out how we can follow suit (Eph 5:1-2).
