"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." [Matthew 4:4]

- Do I understand this Bible passage?

- Do I correctly associate it with I mourning because of my sins? (Mourning means to feel or express sorrow, to lament.)

- Have I repented of all my sins?

- Is there salvation without repentance?

- Do I acknowledge that I am a sinner before God?

- Do I realize that my sins greatly hurt the Heavenly Father?

- Do I realize that I do not deserve salvation and its benefits, the joys of Heaven, the eternal presence of God, the brotherhood of the Saints, the presence of the angels?

- Do I realize that forgiveness and salvation is through the grace of God?

- Will I see God and dwell with Him forever?

- Do I realize that if I mourn for my sins, it is because the Holy Spirit has convicted me of my sins?

- Do I realize that without Jesus, I am completely lost as an island standing alone on the ocean?

- Do I realize that through my sins, I have dishonoured the Holy Name of God. How can I call myself a Christian (follower of Christ) and yet sin?

- Or am I among the arrogant who are full of pride, they who have no time for God in their thoughts? [Psalm 10:4]

Indeed "What a wretched man I am!
Who will rescue me from this body of death?" [Rom. 7:24]
