Matthew 5:4 is because of Jesus.

April 7, 2009

You who are mourning by reason of inbred sin and depravity, remember, none of your sins can condemn you. You have learned to hate sin; but you have also learned how that sin is not yours–it was laid upon Christ’s head. Your standing is not in yourself–it is in Christ. Your acceptance is not in yourself, but in your Lord; you are just as accepted by God today, with all your sinfulness, as you will be when you stand before His throne, free from all corruption.

(by C.H. Spurgeon, revised and updated by Alistair Begg)

    So hopefull to read!
    Tonight we had a meeting with our church members, a kind of ‘quiet time before Easter ‘. When we prayed, a voice in my heart told me to read Roman 6. And now I read your log. Everything falls – as pieces of a puzzle – together. Thanks for your log , this evening.
