“Poor in Self, But Rich in Jesus!”

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3) The Lord’s people are all poor; they see and feel that sin has stripped them of every excellence; and has left them wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind and naked. They can do nothing of themselves, they can procure nothing for themselves; but free grace has provided bountiful provisions for them, and the Gospel informs them that Jesus has everything they need, and that all that He has, is enough for them! Here then is the present blessedness of the Lord’s poor: Jesus has all they need! And He is their Redeemer and Friend! Those who seek Him shall never lack any good thing.” ~ James Smith
