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.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…
Relax and allow the holy power of the word of Christ…to gently take you over!
The New Testament is full of the call to let God give and allow God to enable. But the epistles are addressed to the new creation, not the old man. The call is only to the born-again believer. So (as someone has said) the commands of the New Testament are actually addressed to the Life of Christ within (Ephesians 4:22-24).
Christ alone has the power to yield, the holiness to surrender, and the character to let go. So His life and our union with Him is our only ability to let. Only the new creation is able to just yield.
At last we are able to ‘let God’ be the One Who rules and fills and completes.
