    So many misinterpret this verse to mean blessed are humble people in general, but Jesus was speaking of those who humble themselves before God and accept Jesus Christ as Savior by faith alone. Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote a great book on the Beatitudes (actually a compilation of his sermons on the passage). Below is the portion on the “poor in spirit.”
