7 1Therefore, dear friends, since we have such promises, let us cleanse ourselves from every impurity of the flesh and spirit, completing our sanctification[S] in the fear of God.   Joy and Repentance   2Accept us.[T] We have wronged no one, corrupted no one, defrauded no one. 3I don’t say this to condemn you, for I have already said that you are in our hearts, to live together and to die together. 4I have great confidence in you; I have great pride in you. I am filled with encouragement; I am overcome with joy in all our afflictions. 5In fact, when we came into Macedonia, we[U] had no rest. Instead, we were troubled in every way: conflicts on the outside, fears inside. 6But God, who comforts the humble, comforted us by the arrival of Titus, 7and not only by his arrival, but also by the comfort he received from you. He told us about your deep longing, your sorrow,[V] and your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more. 8For even if I grieved you with my letter, I do not regret it—even though I did regret it since I saw that the letter grieved you, yet only for a little while. 9Now I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because your grief led to repentance. For you were grieved as God willed, so that you didn’t experience any loss from us. 10For godly grief produces a repentance not to be regretted and leading to salvation, but worldly grief produces death. 11For consider how much diligence this very thing—this grieving as God wills—has produced in you: what a desire to clear yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what deep longing, what zeal, what justice! In every way you showed yourselves to be pure in this matter. 12So even though I wrote to you, it was not because of the one who did wrong, or because of the one who was wronged, but in order that your diligence for us might be made plain to you in the sight of God. 13For this reason we have been comforted. In addition to our comfort, we rejoiced even more over the joy Titus had,[W] because his spirit was refreshed by all of you. 14For if I have made any boast to him about you, I have not been embarrassed; but as I have spoken everything to you in truth, so our boasting to Titus has also turned out to be the truth. 15And his affection toward you is even greater as he remembers the obedience of all of you, and how you received him with fear and trembling. 16I rejoice that I have complete confidence in you.

The beatitudes are not natural human characteristics. The first three beatitudes are in response to the revelation of Gods Blessed are the poor in spirit,for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3 Blessed are those who mourn . . . Matthew 5:4a Three kinds of mourning: #1 Matt 23:37-39 Mourning what is going on in the world and cannot do anything to change it #2 Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death 2 Cor. 7:10 Mourning over our own personal sinful state Then Jacob tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and mourned for his son many days. All his sons and daughters came to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “No,” he said, “in mourning will I go down to the grave to my son.” So his father wept for him. Gen. 37:34-35 He was despised and rejected by men,a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering.Like one from whom men hide their faceshe was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53:3 Sorrow for loss of someone or someone who are inflicted (those who suffer) Mourning leaves its own scar or scent upon a person ". . . For they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4b Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Cor. 7:10 They will neither harm nor destroyon all my holy mountain,for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lordas the waters cover the sea. Isaiah 11:9 Comforted by God and hope of a better world promised to us What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ–the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, Phil. 3:8-10 God allows grief into our lives as a path, not a destination. Ascent/Descend Blessed are the meek . . . Matthew 5:5a Praus - strength under control, balance between anger and indifference, freedom from malice and a vengeful spirit . . . for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5b There are more sheep than there are wolves.
