Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Matthew 5:7
Quote from "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount"
This be attitude follows all the others; therefore I put it in this form. I am poor in spirit; I realized that I have no righteousness; I realized that face to face with God and his righteousness I am utterly hopeless; I can do nothing. Not only that. I mourn because of the sin that is within me; I have come to see as a result of the operation of the holy spirit, the blackness of my own heart. I know what it is to cry out, “O, wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me?” and desire to be rid of this vileness that is within me. Not only that. I am meek, which means that now that I have experienced this true view of myself, nobody else can hurt me, nobody else can insult me, nobody can ever say anything too bad about me. I have seen myself, and my greatest enemy does not know the worst about me. I've seen myself as something truly hateful, and it is because of this but I have hungered and thirsted after righteousness. I've longed for it. I have seen that I cannot create it or produce it, and that nobody else can. I've seen my desperate position in the sight of God. I have hungered and thirsted for that righteousness which will put me right with God, and I will reconcile me two God, and give me a new nature and life. And I have seen it in the Christ I've been filled; I have received it as a free gift. - David Martyn-Lloyd Jones
