Here is a quote from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. It is an allegory where Aslan (a lion) is the Christ figure...
When Susan and Lucy ask the Beavers if Aslan is "safe", they are told: "Safe?" said Mr. Beaver... "Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you."
The journey of faith is anything but safe, but it is good. It is challenging, it is worth it!
