Blessed are...Those who Mourn
Key Verses: Matthew 5:4
From Matthew 5:4 we discover that being changed from the inside out consists of 3 vital ingredients:
I. Christ's character being formed in you
God undertakes the process of forming Christ in you by breaking you and then remaking you in the image of His Son.
II. Christ's Sorrow bearing down upon You
God breaks what he makes, and makes what he breaks.
So let's ask God's spirit to break our heart the way our sin breaks his.
III. Christ's Comfort welling up in You
I am consoled by God's forgiveness,
lifted up by God's grace,
empowered by God's Spirit,
emboldened by God's hope,
and comforted by God's presence.
God breaks what he makes,
and makes what he breaks.
So let's ask God's spirit to
break our heart the way our sin breaks his
and let's allow God's spirit to
remake our hearts, so that they are pure like his.
