Time to declare bankruptcy…

APRIL 15

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

What does it mean to be “poor in spirit”? Jesus is talking about being a beggar. He is saying, “Blessed are the beggars.” He’s not talking about finances here. He’s talking about a person being poor spiritually

That is, blessed are those who see their spiritual need, who see they’re bankrupt in the sight of a righteous, holy God, who are broken over their sins, repent and turn from their sins, for they will be truly blessed.  

Before a person can enter into the kingdom of heaven, he must first admit that no matter how much he may have in the material realm or psychological realm, he is absolutely and totally spiritually bankrupt and a beggar before God.  If he doesn’t see that, he will never, ever get into the kingdom of heaven. 

It’s time to realize that without Jesus Christ, we are totally bankrupt before God. I’ve often said I’m just one beggar showing another beggar where to find food. Do you see yourself as a beggar in need of the Bread of Heaven?
