"Blessed Are The Poor In Spirit"

Posted by Christine Pack

I'm a Christian. That doesn't mean that I'm strong and have it all together. It means I'm weak and admit how much I need a Savior.

I saw this quote on a friend's wall and loved it (can't give attribution because there wasn't any, sorry). But I've taken this quote and added a picture of Christian from Pilgrim's Progress at the foot of the cross because to me, this statement is saying that not only should we as Christians marvel at the Cross at the moment of salvation, but that we should also find ourselves, again and again, coming back to the foot of the Cross in all things: bringing our burdens, confessing our sins, praising the Lord for his mercy and care, crying out for other words, we should be completely and humbly reliant upon our Savior, not just for eternal salvation, but for everyday living and at all times, and in all things.

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

"I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." (Philippians 1:6)
