Blessed are the poor in spirit?
Matt.5:3“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven." The poor here isnt speaking of material but spiritual. All humanity are poor in spirit. We are spiritually bankrupt. When we come to this realization, there is nothing good within us, we are fallen sinners, we then meet Jesus, who is the only one who can restore us out of this bankrupt state. His promise to us is, you have been given the kingdom. Amazing. We are rich in Him. You are a child of the King. As we read Gods word, we should read in such a way as desiring all He has for us. We cant say, "no thanks God, Im good."
