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.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all in the house.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Matthew 5:16 ESV
We have an old nature that is bent toward control, even to control of God. He gives us that freedom – not the freedom to conquer Him but to diminish our manifestation of Him. We CAN quench the Spirit! Obviously from this passage, we CAN hide the Light of Christ.
“In the same way, LET your light shine…” ‘Let’ is a word of release, of getting out of the way. ‘Let’ allows God His complete freedom to BE and to take over without our interference.
