“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)
Who else are those who mourn?
Those who suffer for Jesus’ sake (John 16:20, 22, 33). For now we weep because in this world we will have tribulation (Rom. 8:36; 1 Pet. 4:12)
And what is their comfort?
The promises of Christ (John 16:20, 22, 33; Heb. 13:5, 6).
The presence of the peace-giving Spirit (John 14:26, 27).
The participation of the brethren (2 Cor. 1:3-4).
The parousia (Second Coming) of Christ (Rev. 21:4).
Let us not be overwhelmed by sorrow because we not only have spiritual comforts now, we have eternal comfort ahead of us.
(1 Thess. 4:13-18)
