4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
“Mourning” refers to many things in a heart set on God. It describes the mourning of a believer as they struggle through this fallen world. Watching those around us move through life in pain with hardened hearts. It could be the pain of being persecuted in the sanctification that comes from a life in Christ. The faithful mourn sin. The sin of this dark world is uncomfortably abrasive as followers seek the light of Christ. We should also find sorrow in our own sin, which will lead the righteous to repentance and the comfort of God’s grace, forgiveness, and unfailing love.
(2 Corinthians 7:10) 10 For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
