The disciple’s life is a paradox. His hope rises from fear. His life comes from the resurrection of the dead. And Jesus confirms this paradox in his opening statements of the sermon on the mount. In this message, Bro. Tim examines this happiness found in sadness, making the point that this is quite different from the happiness and sadness of the world. It is a sadness over one’s own sins and the sins they see around them, and the happiness comes in knowing that our forgiveness is in Christ.
