According to Jesus Christ, all you need to do is admit that you need God, and you possess the kingdom of heaven.
It seems too simple to be true. However, when we look at very first beatitude found in Matthew, Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3).
“Theirs is” means that they possess it. So what does it mean to be poor in spirit? It simply means that you admit that you need God (i.e. spirituality)–you cannot do it on your own.
All you have to admit is: “I need…” and you are in, my friend! Jesus kept it simple. Let’s keep it simple, too.
Prayer: Lord, I need you.
