"Let go and let God" is a phrase that cropped up some years ago and still enjoys some popularity today. Actually, the Bible never tells us to "let go and let God." In fact, there are so many comman...
As Christians, we must 'fight the good fight", choose our battles, and do our very best, as heaven gave its best for us.

In a recent sermon, our pastor preached on the Sermon on the Mount. In it, Jesus spoke of the wide and narrow gate Mat 7:13-14. Our pastor explained that the wide gate is wide enough that you can walk through while carrying your stuff (sin, regrets, past hopes and dreams, etc). Lots of people try to enter heaven while carrying their stuff. On the other hand, the narrow gate is only wide enough for one person without carrying anything. If we try to enter heaven without letting go of our sin, we won't fit through the gate. The wide gate leads to destruction. The narrow gate is to life. I look at that phrase in light of this. If we don't "let go" of our sin and "let God " have control, our lives will end in destruction. I know people look at the phrase add a reason to coast through life, but it takes active participation on our part through the power of the Holy Spirit to be able to "let go."
