Welcome to Refinery Life Australia.
The Inward Attitudes of a True Disciple is our theme for the next few Sunday mornings.
This series is based on the Beatitudes, found in the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount.
Today we are discussing, The Poverty That Possesses.
The person who is truly poor in spirit is blessed because such poverty enables that person to possess the supreme possession of all, “the kingdom of heaven.”
For our sakes, Jesus set the example in 2 Corinthians 8:9, For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
Poverty of spirit is the first character trait Jesus wants in His followers, the subjects of His kingdom.
It is a trait that carries its own reward, “theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Note the tenses here carefully, “Blessed are the poor in spirit,” not “have been,” or “ shall be,” but “are.”
Two questions about his beatitude call for an answer.
Until next time
Stay in the Blessings
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word.
When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer.
Theres nothing thats too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at www.refinerylife.org
When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you.
