Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:3).
In Scripture, blessed means happy, a type of contentedness, an inner peace, a state of restfulness that is not created from or affected by circumstances or emotions that are ever-changing. It is a state of well-being and inner joy, rooted and grounded in the truth of Jesus Christ, who never changes. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus contrasts the world’s definition of happiness with true blessedness, which is spiritual prosperity, having the gift of eternal life. This only comes from having a right relationship with God through faith in Christ (Romans 5:1).
Poor in spirit is the opposite of self-sufficiency. The poor in spirit speaks of those who have deep humility and recognize their own sinfulness, their total spiritual destitution, and their complete dependence on God to be saved. Their pride is gone, their self-assurance is gone, and they stand empty-handed before God, knowing they are undeserving of His favor. The poor in spirit know there are no saving resources in themselves and that they can only beg for God’s mercy and grace for salvation. Those who are poor in spirit don't trust in their own self-perceived goodness, personal merit, or good works to save them. Rather, they trust in the person and finished work of Jesus Christ alone to save them. Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, according to Scripture alone, all for God’s glory alone.
