"Advantages" to being poor:
  1. The poor know they are in urgent need of redemption.
  2. The poor know not only their dependance on God and on powerful people but also their interdependance with one another.
  3. The poor rest their security not on things but on people.
  4. The poor have no exaggerated sense of their own importance and noexaggerated need of privacy.
  5. The poor expect little from competition and much from cooperation
  6. The poor can distinguish between necessities and luxuries.
  7. The poor can wait, because they have acquired a kind of dogged patience born of acknowledged dependance.
  8. The fears of the poor are more realistic and less exaggerated, because they already know that one can survive great suffering and want.
  9. When the poor have the Gospel preached to them, it sounds like good news and not like a threat or a scolding.
  10. The poor can respond to the call of the Gospel with a certain abandonment and uncomplicated totality because they have so little to lose and are ready for anything.

The Covenant Renewed at Shecham John
Martyn Lloyd-Jones' quote: "Charles Spurgeon says, 'There is a point in grace as much above the ordinary Christian as is the ordinary Christian is above the worldling.' So I ask my obvious question: Are we in this point to which Mr. Spurgeon refers...do we conform to this description that this apostle gives in Ephesians 3:16-19?"
