The fifteenth day of our commentary from the International Formation house in Ann Arbor, MI following our Meditations for the 40 Days. John Yocum comments on two verses from the Sermon on the Mount.
Those who mourn for their sins shall receive the comfort of the Holy Spirit; those whose hearts are set on a life that pleases God shall see him.
4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. … 8”Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. – Mat 5:4, 8 RSV
