“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Matt 5:3
There is a connection between Isaiah 53 and Matt 5:3. The poverty of spirit that Christ calls us into, comes from the poverty of spirit He took upon himself for us. He became poor that we, through His poverty, might be rich in Him. Oh, that we would know poverty of spirit, that we may know Jesus in the fullness of His beauty.
