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.
Matthew 6:22 KJV
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
The ESV translates the condition of the eye as ‘healthy,’ the NASB says ‘clear.’ I love the King James version. Your eye is single. You see with both eyes, just one object.
The King James version is more correct – the Greek word means: single, not complex. Double vision is when each eye goes its own direction and so you see nothing clearly. But when the eye has a single focus there is ‘health and clarity.’
What a spiritual principle…brilliantly shown within our own created bodies.
