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 6:29 AMPC
Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust in, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].
The Amplified Bible always defines faith in a far different way than all the to-dos and the how-tos.
Cleave to: Cling to God in desperation.
Trust in: Come down to know Jesus is your only hope.
Rely on: Utter dependence on Christ.
Faith is not a power to lay hold of with your mental might. Faith is what you are reduced to – when all control, help, and effort fails.
Faith begins with the abject need to know Who the Son of God is for me now.
