(Watch 3-minute excerpt) Jesus said that the “poor in spirit” shall see God. They know they deserve nothing, so they appreciate everything about life. The intellectual or “rich” person thinks he doesn’t need God.
A Christian man married a woman who doesn’t believe in God, because he felt guilty for having sex out-of-wedlock. Jesse told him that he should stop having sex with her, not marry her.
A young lady forgave her mother, who asked, “What for?” When she explained, the mother said, “I forgive you too.” But the daughter was only difficult because the mother made her that way.
Jesse urged everyone to “test the spirit” by not believing any thought that enters the mind. 2 Corinthians 10:5 talks about bringing every thought into captivity.
