Week 5 of a six-week series called Promises Fulfilled. As Lutheran Christians, we understand that God’s Word for us is twofold: to afflict us and also to comfort us. We cannot have one without the other. A word that brings peace to someone may also be a word of discomfort to another. Sometimes you or I are on the receiving end of discomfort, but there is always the promise of the Good News that holds us and sustains us.
