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.
John 6:27 AMPC
Stop toiling and doing and producing for the food that perishes and decomposes [in the using], but strive and work and produce rather for the [lasting] food which endures [continually] unto life eternal; the Son of Man will give (furnish) you that, for God the Father has authorized and certified Him and put His seal of endorsement upon Him.
The first step of “striving to enter the rest” is to come out from working for self-survival and self-interest and engage a new work of entire focus on God in Jesus Christ.
When you come to the abject need of His success over against your unending failure, and you access His Life daily by prayer and receptivity, then you come to the poverty that begins to enter this Great Rest our God has fully established for us in the Lord Jesus.
So exactly what IS the work of “striving to enter the rest?”
