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.
James 1:7-8 ESV
For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Wanting both masters is to lose the One True Master. It is double-mindedness that leads to collapse.
Through the ages, believers have always tried to have one foot in the world and one in heaven…going back and forth between loyalty to one and betrayal of the other. The horror of this is that we can love God with genuine fervor and still, mammon can capture the human soul. We are capable of turning on God with a hate and rage that is beyond the human and into the diabolical.
The world’s allure is very dangerous. We must guard our heart’s love. But there is hope! The world-system AND its god are defeated.
