The Sermon on the Mount
Matthew 5:1-3 – The Poor in Spirit. Jesus sermon is the Constitution of the Kingdom of God. He lays out what our lives following God should look like. It is directly contrary to the ways of the Pharisees and the religious leaders of the time. It can only be accomplished through the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit only comes to those who admit that they are poor in spirit. We need to be spiritually bankrupt before seeing how much we need Jesus.
Jesus is King!
