Does Your Faith Comfort You?

by admin | June 9th, 2014

Does Your Faith Comfort You?Not all faiths are equal. For some people their faith is simply a leftover from their childhood days; they might say they believe, but aren’t really sure what they believe in.¬†Others, are more regular in practicing their faith, but seldom with anything more than outward conformity to tradition. Still others, who are more firmly committed to their faith, might wonder if there is anything upon which their faith rests which is firm and true and dependable.

Have you ever wondered: Is it possible to have a faith that provides deep comfort through all of the ups and downs of life? Can I believe in anything that will actually transport me from a place of uncertainty and fear and indifference to a place of confidence, boldness, and passionate engagement? Is there a faith that can satisfy my mind, warm my heart, and move my hands and feet along a deeply satisfying path? Can I be certain that when I leave this world I will be greeted by those welcome words of God, “Come…inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” (Matthew 25:34).

The word of God is plain: Faith that comforts is not only possible but promised by God to all those who will humble themselves before his majesty.

Covenant Reformed Church of Carbondale is planning a special worship service at 11:00 on August 17 where anyone who is interested in this faith can hear this truly good news.

If you can’t wait that long, please email info@covenantrc.org or call 570.282.6400 and we’d be glad to tell you all about it! In the meantime here’s the short story: The only way to achieve true peace with God, and true peace of conscience is to be assured that the God of heaven and earth is favorably inclined toward you. And the only way to be assured of God’s friendship is to reject any idea of self-righteousness and trust wholeheartedly in the perfect righteousness of God’s Son, Jesus. Those who trust in him have their sins forgiven and begin to experience the comfort of a restored relationship with the one whose friendship matters most.

Find out more on August 17!
