With “Blessed,” Vertical Worship makes a fresh musical offering. The Beatitudes were the inspiration for the new song, according to Vertical Worship’s social media explanation. Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven, is the first phrase of the Sermon on the Mount. Although we may be acquainted with these words, they contain a significant invitation from Jesus. The people who acknowledge their need for Him are the ones who will learn most about His kingdom, not those who have everything figured out or all the answers. And having more of Him means having more of His control over my life. His rule is love, and He approaches us in kindness.
