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.
Hebrews 12:2 ESV
…Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith…
The word ‘founder’ in Greek means ‘the originator, the beginning’ and it implies creation. Faith is found in the Creator of faith. What a perfect Source!
The word ‘perfecter’ is a Greek word for furniture finishing! Wood in scripture stands for humanity. On its own, wood can make nothing of itself. Wood just is. But when God gets hold of humanity’s woodenness, He can create life and action and He does so by the gift of Christ’s own faith.
Jesus is the One human and divine Being who believed God perfectly, fully, and beyond this life. HE is the only Source of genuine faith.
