Blessed Are those who Mourn, for they shall be comfortedJohn 15:9-11
In the gospel of John we read, “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love.
“I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.”
Here Jesus shows us how to accept His comfort: Remain in His love. Keep the commandments. Do not stray from service and obedience to the Lord.
He not only gives us comfort in our mourning, but he shows us that our mourning can become joy if we follow His words.
