Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.
How often do we think of mourning as a good thing? When it comes to sin, it is.
Those who sorrow over their own sinfulness will turn to God for forgiveness. When he willingly responds to their repentance, mourning ends.
Comforted by God’s pardon, transformed sinners celebrate – and joyous love for Jesus replaces sorrow.
