90 year old William Shatner, famously known as Captain Kirk from Star Trek, became the oldest person to go into space last month. He went on the invitation of Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the richest men in the world. The 90 year old tweeted, “It’s never too late to experience new things.” In the Bible, Jesus speaks of an experience that is made available that is of infinite worth but he limits this experience not to the rich and famous but the poor. Those who are poor in Spirit. Jesus says in Matthew 5:3 blessed are the poor in spirt, for there is the kingdom of heaven. Poor in Spirit are those who recognize their destitute, spiritual condition. It speaks of someone who recognizes their need of salvation made possible through Jesus Christ and they trust in Him to satisfy that need.
