The wrong type of comfort can be like the pig feeling good in the mud. Many people today feel comfortable in the environment of sin. Some people would prefer to live in a sin city like Las Vegas or Chicago because it offers a lot of what sin has to offer. Many people think that they are safe because they are comfortable. A sexually immoral may feel comfortable with one's impurity, a drunkard may feel comfort in getting drunk, a robber may feel comfort in robbing others but these are no guarantees for safety. 1 Thessalonians 5:3 warns, "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." or as Proverbs 14:12 warns, "For there is a way that seemeth right unto a man but the end of it are the ways of death."
The truth of the eternal Word is like the truth that hurts but heals. Sin can intoxicate a person like a lie that heals but slowly kills. People today do what they do in their comfort zones of sin unaware that they are about to be swallowed into Hell. They hate the Gospel because it is against their comfort zone of sin. The Gospel may offend the sinner but it leads the sinner to salvation. Galatians 3:24 declares, "Wherefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith." The Law is offensive to the sinner who not only loves sin but many sinners think, "I am okay with God. I do more good than bad." when in reality, the Law shows just how sinful man is and the need of salvation is really there as James 2:10 declares, "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all."
