People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:4

Mt 5:4 Blessed [are] they that mourn. Not all mourners, for there is "a sorrow of this world that worketh death". Godly sorrow is meant, a mourning over sinfulness. See 2Co 7:10.

    Verse 16: Christians must let their light shine by good conduct and putting into practice the teaching found in the Bible. By doing this, they are bringing praise and glory to God.
  • Geraldine Cole
    Yes God loves us all and he wants his children to love and show love to one another thats how the world will no we belong to him by the way we love ye one another
  • Alex
    God is no respector of persons he loves everybody thats y he sends his sun/son and rain/spirit on the good and the bad the just and unjust. His love and mercy is beyond OUR COMPREHENSION. IF I BELIFTED UP I WILL DRAW ALL ALL MEN UNTO ME, There was none righteous no not one but while we the world was yet sinners he died for all of us,that he might rise again in the hearts of EVERYMAN VIA HIS SEED.
  • A disciple
    "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your REWARD in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." The word in the original Greek Text indicates Payment, as in Wages or Hire for some work done. Our salvation depends on our finishing the course as overcomers, and enduring true and faithful to the end. Then truly by our fruits we shall be known, of what kind we are!
  • Servant
    If we can take anything from Matt. . Let it be that Christ is trying to teach us about the Royal Law of love .
  • Amelliea
    The lord said let there be light and there was light..... In the beginning god created the heaven and the earth.. For god so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who ever believed in him should not perish but have a everlasting life....
