About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
2 Corinthians 3:7-8 HCSB
Now if the ministry of death, chiseled in letters on stones, came with glory, so that the Israelites were not able to look directly at Moses’ face because of the glory from his face—a fading glory—how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?
Along the way of human history, God gave us signs of the GLORY of His Son shining down for us. Jesus, the ‘light from heaven.’
Moses, facing God on Sinai and unaware of the glow on his face, came down the mountain to the people. But they could not bear to look at him, the brightness was so convicting… And anyway the glory of the law was to fade from Moses’ face. As wonderful as it was in pure fire and fearsome thunder, the law was powerless to transform humanity.
