The Poor in Spirit

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 5:3

- In this verse Jesus says that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to the poor in spirit. What is He saying? The poor in spirit means those who have a humble heart, humility, contrition. God dwells in the high and lofty place with those of a humble spirit (Isaiah 57:15). Pride is not permitted in the Kingdom of God. The world's system is the opposite. The world system says to be great you must be someone who takes and climes to the top even if it means stepping on others. The Kingdom of God is opposite, if you want to enter the Kingdom of God and partake of its benefits you must have a humble spirit and serve others.

Lord give us this humble spirits, that we will surrender and yield our wants and desires to You and say, "Thy will be done not mine" Give us a humble spirit that looks to You at all times.

In His Service,

Please pray as I am still in North India. Pray for God to confirm His Word with signs and wonders. Pray for the dear people that they will understand the Gospel and what it means to follow Jesus.
