Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:3)
To be poor in spirit means that you recognize the need for God's grace, mercy, and strength.
You acknowledge that you cannot rely on your own strength to enter the kingdom of heaven.
You understand that you are spiritually broke without Him. The good news is that Jesus came to give you an abundant spiritual life. (John 10:10)
When you recognize that you are spiritually poor without Christ and put your faith in Him, you can experience the abundant blessings that come from having a relationship with Jesus. ~ Jeff M Newman
