6 comments on “Marks of the Poor in Spirit

  1. Great post!
    “Poverty of spirit is the foundation stone on which God lays the superstructure of eternal glory”. Wonderful quote!!
    Think of what use influence and/or affluence will be to us in eternity–nothing.

    • Thank you Sundowniest! You’re exactly right, and I like the way you say it, that influence and/or affluence will be nothing to us in eternity. And the great paradox is that this spiritual poverty brings the only true riches — per Thomas Watson, “Poverty of spirit entitles us to all of Christ’s riches”. The poor in spirit are enriched with a heavenly kingdom!

  2. Very well-said…it’s humility, abasing ourselves and totally relying on the precious blood of Jesus, and the precious grace of God – for without them, we have no hope. But with them, we have everything that God has!

    • Thank you so much, Lester, for your comment. It truly is total reliance on the precious blood of Jesus and the precious grace of God, that we are able to be part of the Kingdom of God. Have a blessed weekend! Dee
