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 3:11-12 ESV
For if what was being brought to an end came with glory, much more will what is permanent have glory. Since we have such a hope, we are very bold…
The glory of the law faded because it could not change the hearts of people. God destroyed mankind in the flood, because “the thoughts of [man’s] heart was only evil continually” (Gen. 6:5) .
The flood didn’t change mankind. The Law didn’t transform humanity.
But this glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ is permanent. The power of Christ’s resurrection and indwelling is the only force that has ever changed humanity, redeemed mankind. And that glory cannot be diminished. It is permanent radiance and it is open to every one who turns to Jesus unveiled.
Tomorrow I want to write about the veil. It’s so essential to understand how to remove the veil that separates us from this splendor of God’s glory in Christ.
