Matthew 5.3 - 1st Beatitude
In this presentation, Steve Gregg discusses the first Beatitude found in Matthew 5:3. He explains that when Jesus said "Blessed are the poor in spirit," he meant that it is enviable to evaluate oneself in terms of spirituality and righteousness and see oneself as having nothing to congratulate oneself for. Gregg emphasizes the importance of humility, repentance, and surrendering to the Lord for salvation. He also touches on the difference between the terms "kingdom of God" and "kingdom of heaven," both mentioned in the Sermon on the Mount.
