On Sunday, the preacher Professor Freddy Boey talked about the Beatitudes.
The next day, Hoon passed us a book on the Sermon on the Mount.
The first line of the Beatitudes goes:
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Recognising that we need the Holy Spirit is the first step. It’s not the easiest thing to do. It’s about realising that what we need is more than what this world can offer.
And when we have tasted the goodness of the Holy Spirit, we can agree that He is not just more, but also better than anything this world can give.
Am I living in God’s Kingdom? Every day, do I recognise how much I need Him?
