Blessed are the poor in spirit...
Jesus' pivotal Sermon on the Mount starts with these words... "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." Wherever you are in life, this is the qualification for coming to Christ... to be poor in spirit... to come as you are, with all your cares, all your baggage, all your shame, all your dreams... lay them at the feet of Jesus... as you are. And in that place of brokenness and repentance, you will find freedom from the bondage of sin. You will find peace that passes understanding. Come with me on this journey of faith. Let's open God's word together and allow the Holy Spirit, who promises to lead us into all truth, to show us the truths that are "relevant" to our lives in this day and this time.
