Entering any elected office in our state requires certain qualifications such as citizenship, age, and residency. In the “greatest speech ever given” – the Sermon on the Mount – Jesus proclaims the important truth that in order to enter God’s Kingdom, we must first possess certain qualifications. As He lists these qualities, He begins with two seeming paradoxical statements: “Blessed are the poor in Spirit”, and “Blessed are those who mourn”. As the rest of the Beatitudes build upon these first two, we should carefully consider what they mean for us.

This is the topic of this week's Bible study in the West Virginia statehouse - "Poor and Mourning in the Capitol". Please pray that leaders will come to see their need for Christ for salvation. Pray that believers will be encouraged to completely depend upon the Lord to live out their faith and serve as leaders in our state. You can find all our studies from this session as well as previous series here.

Thank you for your prayers and support of our ministry to leaders in the capitol and around the state.
