“Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live,” – 2 Peter 3:11 NLT
God is not a drug, and He certainly does not create experiences and emotions that make us feel better but not become better.
Being conformed into the image of Christ (Sanctification) is the destination for every disciple of Jesus Christ, and getting to that shore will require transformation of our inner lives (Romans 8:29; 2 Corinthians 3:17-18). This is why it can so confidently be said that God is concerned with our character even over our comfort. He is not disinterested in our comfort but transformation is, and always will be, the main thing.
