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.
Mark 8:1-2 ESV
In those days, when again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat, He called His disciples to Him and said to them, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with Me now three days and have nothing to eat.
And if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way.”
With just seven loaves and a few fish, Jesus fed a multitude of four thousand with seven baskets left over. We do not know the practical God, the One Who ‘knows we are dust.’
This gift of Jesus’ LIFE is utterly practical. It is ‘for the life of the world,’ meaning that He is the Energy that replaces our human weakness, the Performer of our basic responsibilities, and it’s His Integrity that replaces our original corruption.
Only His LIFE, in you and in me, satisfies God. Forever! And amazingly – His life satisfies ME as nothing else ever has or ever could!
