..."Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
Today, I'll give you my short version:
- Once a person encounters the holiness and grace of our loving Creator and Friend, it is with deep sorrow that she mourns her sinfulness. She begins to understand that it is her sin that has separated her from her God. She humbly submits her life to Him (blessed are the poor in spirit). She comprehends that she is a sinner saved by His grace. As she daily sees her own humanity, her mourning extends to consider the humanity of others. She is overwhelmed with the condition of the lost world around her. It is because of His grace that her mourning can turn to joy!
