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 3:9 PHILLIPS
The administration of the Law which was engraved in stone (and which led in fact to spiritual death) was so magnificent that the Israelites were unable to look unflinchingly at Moses’ face, for it was alight with heavenly splendour.
The law was never meant to fix broken humanity. The law unveiled the glory of God in His spectacular holiness.
The law revealed Who God is and exposed who we are not.
And so the Ten Commandments were “spiritual death” for Adam and Eve’s descendants. The law, though entirely glorious, was the ministry of death (HCSB). Fallen humanity – in comparison to God’s shining holiness – is under a sentence of death!
