taking a closer look – “Let”

Some of you may have guessed by now that “Oh Come Let us Adore Him” is not the full  words of the Christmas carol, rather it makes up the bulk of the chorus. Kudos to you if you caught that! 🙂

HiHP let

LET. A verb (used with object) via Dictionary.com

  1. to allow or permit 
  2. to allow to pass, go, or come
  3. to grant the occupancy or use of (land, buildings, rooms, space, etc.)
  4. to contract or assign for performance, usually under contract
  5. to cause to; make
  6. (used in the imperative as an auxiliary expressive of a request, command, warning, suggestion, etc.)

When I hear the word “Let” being sung, I am very thankful for what it means. I am permitted, allowed to go or come into His Presence, for He has granted us occupancy in His Kingdom!  He has signed the contract which allows us access, and makes us able to come!  But most importantly, LET reminds us that we are able to invite and remind one another to come with awe as we worship the newborn King!

Let your heart catch the wonder afresh today!
