Why is it we often tend to view God only as a stern, unhappy deity overseeing all we do? Jesus tackles that head on when his first message on earth tells how and why God wants us to be happy.
Being poor in spirit means recognizing our spiritual need for God.
Recognizing our need for God leads to mourning in our hearts over our sinful condition that separates us from Him.
When we have truly mourned our sin, we gladly take the next step of submitting our will to God's.
Submitting our will to God's will stir up a holy hunger for more of Him.
