We’re doing a series on The Beatitudes, and the third beatitude is Meekness. We’re also here on Pentecost, and that is because we believe the holy day ties in with this beatitude.
So let’s read – let’s do a little review here – Matthew 5, verse 3.
Mt. 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
We learned that poverty of spirit is spiritual emptiness. That’s where we acknowledge that, without God, we know nothing – about Him, His ways, how we should live our lives. So, once we get to that point, that’s the first step in true spirituality. The first thing a person has to do, when he comes to God, is to admit that He’s in charge and that we’re weak and powerless. That’s where it all begins.
