Poverty of Spirit – Arthur Pink

Poverty of Spirit - Arthur Pink

“Poverty of spirit may be viewed as the negative side of faith. It is that realization of one’s utter worthlessness that precedes a laying hold of Christ by faith. It is the work of the Spirit emptying the heart of self, that Christ may fill it. It is a sense of need and destitution. This first Beatitude, then, is foundational, describing a fundamental trait that is found in every regenerated soul. The one who is poor in spirit is nothing in his own eyes, and feels that his proper place is in the dust before God. The place of humble self-abasement before God is the place of blessing for His children.”

~Arthur Pink, “The Beatitudes”~@Real men read Pink (A.W. Pink)

I will be sharing videos from my YouTube channel to this blog in the hope that others might be blessed and God glorified. Here is a description of my channel: A large video collection of classic hymns, contemporary Praise and Worship songs, and the works (audio books, devotional readings, and sermons) of men greatly used of God, such as: Charles Spurgeon, Jonathan Edwards, A.W. Tozer, A.W. Pink, John Owen, Oswald Chambers, Andrew Murray, John MacArthur, E.M. Bounds, John Bunyan, George Whitefield, and many more, covering topics on many aspects of the Christian life. May your time spent here be blessed. "He must increase, but I must decrease." (John 3:30) https://www.youtube.com/user/stack45ny

    I agree, although I find people taking this the wrong way and utterly despising themselves. The way I look at this now is to literally see myself “small” before the Lord and yet still very very loved. I don’t have to be the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE, but I know that the destiny of all who are intimate with Him is to be the Bride, and that is a very high role indeed!
