BLESSED BY MAJOR-LEAGUE SUFFERING

Sunday, December 13, 2015 - Pastor Kevin Bowen 

Matthew 5:4 - Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

  1. What are you mourning over?
  2. Without suffering there's no comfort

Job 42:5 - My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you.

2 Corinthians 1:3 - Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort

          3. Your sin is not just a bad choice

Psalm 32:3-5 - When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, "I will confess my transgressions to the Lord." And You forgave the guilt of my sin.

Psalm 32:1-2 - Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit. 

Psalm 32:11 - Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

James 4: 8-10 - Come near to God and He will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.
