The Reality of The Kingdom of God

"Blessed are they that are poor in spirit for theirs is the Kingdom of God." (Matthew 5:3)
To those who have discovered the deficiency in their self-sufficiency, being poor in spirit is indeed a step towards the reality of the Kingdom of God - it is a taste of life more abundantly experienced in the here & now.  
Eternal Father - Sovereign Lord who is mighty to save - grant us all the grace to discover the meaning of this word spoken by Jesus, and may the power of this word penetrate the hardness of our hearts, so that we might know the truth and that the truth will make us free - indeed.  
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Host!
