The Poor in Spirit
September 18, 2022 | Dario Agnolutto | Matthew 5:3
Poverty is something in this world that people seek to avoid. Yet, Jesus tells us those who are “spiritually” bankrupt are “blessed”. Spiritual poverty leads us to recognize that, apart from Jesus, we are destined for eternal death and suffering. Spiritual poverty leads us to desire the life that only faith in Jesus can bring; it leads us to worship our God Who brings us new life in Jesus; and it leads us to live focused on the assurance of our eternal Kingdom, instead of the things of our broken world.
