“Looking Unto Jesus”

I suppose when we tell men to “Look to Christ” or read “Looking unto Jesus”, this puzzles some people.

One may say, “If Christ were in Jerusalem, I would sell out and go and look upon and listen to Him.”

Another may say, “If Christ were on earth today, I would look to Him and sit at His feet.”

My friends, men speak like Nicodemus, “How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?” (John 3:4).

By nature, we are so bound to the flesh.

Our saving relationship and connection with the Lord Jesus has nothing to do with our natural eyes, ears, and flesh – BUT WITH THE RENEWED MIND AND HEART. To look to Christ is to hear Him in the MIND, believe and love Him in the HEART, bow and receive Him in the WILL!

One does not need a college degree to look. You may not be able to read, but you can look; you may be destitute of virtue, but you can look; you may have no merit, but you can look.

Looking to the Redeemer requires my PERSONAL interest and attention. Another can pray for me, but no one can look for me; I must look to Christ myself – not to His apostles, His church, His law, His ordinances.

“Look unto Me”, He said, “and be ye saved.”
