Feb 7, 2021 | Service Summaries

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Those who are poor in spirit are rich in God.


  • A distinguishing feature of the poor in spirit is that they understand themselves to be com­pletely dependent on God.
  • The poor in spirit are aware of their own limi­tations. They know that God loves them, and they trust in Him.
  • The poor in spirit do not rely on their own merits in order to attain sal­vation, but rather put all of their hope in the grace of God.
