The Blessings of Humility and Repentance
The need for repentance happens anytime we slide back into sin’s. In his great mercy God forgives those acknowledge their sins and restores them. Christ is that one friend who is humble and expects his friends to be humble as well.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” (Mat. 5:3-4)
“Blessed are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Here Jesus is talking about humility or a contrite spirit. He is not talking about being financially or physically poor, spiritually starving, or poverty-stricken, but He is talking about having a humble spirit before God.
In James chapter four and verse six the Bible says,
“But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.” (James 4:6)
Grace is not only unmerited favor, but it is God’s power to be able to do whatever He wants us to do.
To have the grace of God is to be enabled by God.
