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.
1 John 1:5-6 HCSB
Now this is the message we have heard from Him, and declare to you: God is light, and there is absolutely no darkness in Him. If we say, “We have fellowship with Him,” yet walk in darkness, we are lying and are not practicing the truth.
Bear with me, I am going very slowly down the path of repentance, which removes the veil that separates us from the Glory of Christ. This is that crucial to every believer’s destiny.
John, the disciple Jesus loved, has two major subjects. The first issue for John is relationship with God.
John seems to have been quietly transparent with the Lord. He was somehow capable of intimate relationship even before the Holy Spirit was given. And the other disciples recognized that John had a special place with Jesus.
John understood that Jesus came for relationship. Jesus sought personal one-on-one relationships.
It appears that Jesus went to Samaria deliberately to meet with one person, the woman at the well. Jesus gained many relationships because of this woman’s total transparency. “Many Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman’s testimony” (John 4:39).
John described Jesus by these encounters with the one. He was led of the Spirit to write the stories of Jesus dealing with the individual, fascinating accounts that tell us volumes about Christ as a personal Lord and how to be in fellowship with Him. If we listen carefully, we will discover what makes for personal intimacy with Jesus Christ.
Tomorrow…John’s second subject.
