Blessed are the Poor

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

Before we came to Christ living in sin, and after we came to Christ and falling back, we often believe we have messed up so bad we are too far gone to return to God. It couldn’t be anymore far from the truth; the devil is a liar, and the one thing he doesn’t want us to know is the availability of God’s kingdom and power to deliver us in those very moments.

imagesCAQLMU7YFor scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:7-8 KJV)

We need to remember that when Christ came to die for us, we were his enemies, and that we were far from God, both Jew and Gentile, and even though we were far off from God he came in the form of man to deliver us. We were poor in our spirits, desperately in need of redemption, we were on our way to death and hell, but in those very moments God came down from heaven, and with the power of heaven delivered us from our fears.

It is when we are down, when we are broken, and when we have fallen that the power of God is truly at work in our lives. It is in those moments we are to reach out to the Father of life and he will recuse us from all our fears.

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief. (Proverbs 24:16 KJV)

The unrighteous, un-repenting man when he falls, has no one to deliver him because he has turned his back on the God who is able to help, but the righteous man will find mercy and truth and comfort from all his fear because he has trusted in the saving grace of God the Father through Jesus Christ. God is waiting to provide comfort to all who will call on his name.

For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:12-13 KJV)

  1. As the hymn says, “The love of God, how rich and free, how measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure, the saints’ and angels’ song”.
