Matthew 5:3 ” Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Paul wrote about this in Romans 9:30-32 when he basically said, the Gentiles obtained righteousness by faith, but Israel pursued the Law, not by faith but by works. It’s not until we see our utter helplessness as broken people will we seek God. For we are all spiritually bankrupt beggars that have nothing to “save” ourselves, no matter how hard we try to “work” our way to heaven…and it’s not until we admit this wanton poverty, repent over our sins, and seek righteousness can we then see God’s hand working in our lives.
