(Mat 5:4) Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
To “mourn” is to suffer pain due to a loss. Do we ever look at our lives with sadness because we have failed our Lord and brought shame to His name?
The type of sadness I am talking about is NOT a feeling of regret because we were caught in our sin; NOR is it a feeling of torment because we are feeling the results of our sin. It is a sorrow that is motivated by a knowledge that we have sinned against the One how gave His life for us. We have spit in His face, mocked His faithfulness to us and, in a sense, actually placed Him on the cross. Remember, it is for these same sins that He suffered and died.
If this is the type of sorrow that we feel, all hope is not lost. It is a Godly sorrow that leads us to repentance. It is repentance that leads to our forgiveness. And it is forgiveness that gives comfort to a morning heart.
Truly, blessed are those who sorrow with a Godly sorrow, for they will be forgiven and their broken heart will be healed.
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
