The biblical concept of being poor in spirit is foundational to every aspect of the Christian life. Foundational to salvation is a heart-level acknowledgment of our need for a Savior. Foundational to experiencing God’s love is acknowledging our great need of love. Foundational to heavenly peace and joy is an acknowledgment that this world truly offers us neither. If we want all that God in his grace offers, we must pursue a lifestyle of being poor in spirit. May you experience more of the depth of God’s love this week as you discover God’s heart to minister to those desperate for him.
Our Scripture for today comes from James 4:6, and today's worship is Everything You Are by First15 Worship feat. John Marc Kohl.

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out?
Something needs to change!
So, we’re launching the First15 Digital Retreat to help address the challenges we face in connecting with God in this frenetic cultural moment.
When we look to Jesus, we see this exciting, life-giving invitation:
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.” –Matthew 11:28 MSG
Through the First15 Digital Retreat, you will make space to come, rest, and recover.
Join us and speakers like Craig Denison, Aaron Niequist, Strahan Coleman, Charaia Callabrass, Ashley Abercrombie, and several more, as well like worship by First15 Worship artists like Nikki Moltz and Rachel Denison.
