Comfortable with the Right Things

" order to speak as the Bible speaks, we must get more comfortable with biblical paradox and less comfortable with tidiness of our own systems." - Wilson, AC, p49.

This should show itself in our devotional lives, in the preparation for preaching when you are exegeting a text, and when you are answering questions from the Bible.  We should be careful that we are not always apologizing for what Jesus or one of His prophets just said there in that way.  They probably meant to.  Before "balancing" that strong statement with other statements from the Bible, there is a time and place to just sit in that one truth for a few minutes and see what it does to you.
