Blessed Are Those Who Mourn – Tim Conway

The Christian life is full of paradoxes; one, in particular, is that our lives are full of joy but also full of mourning. Even though we have the joy of Christ and the hope of heaven, yet there are still many things in this life that cause us to mourn. One thing that specifically causes us to mourn is our own remaining sin. These two realities may not seem to go together to the carnal mind, but we’ll never taste the sweetness of God’s comfort if we have not tasted the bitterness of mourning over our sin.
