Look to Jesus
By David J. Stewart
“Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.” —Isaiah 45:22
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up” (John 3:14). The children of Israel had sinned by complaining and God was punishing them. Many Israelites were dying from the bite of the fiery serpents. The people came to Moses begging for help and then Moses went to God in prayer. Here’s what God told Moses... “And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery SERPENT, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live” (Numbers 21;8). The serpent represented our Lord Jesus Christ who became as sin for us, despised and rejected of men, because He loved us so much. John 3:14 says that Jesus, just as the fiery serpent in Moses’ day, needs to be lifted up today for all men to look upon Him for salvation.
Are you perishing in sin? Look to Jesus! Are discouraged and lonely? Look to Jesus! Are you worried or scared? Look to Jesus! Are you tired or burned out? Look to Jesus! Are you sad or depressed? Look to Jesus! Are you feeling empty or worthless? Look to Jesus! Are you living in conditions of misery? Look to Jesus! Have you recently failed at something? Look to Jesus! Do you have guilt or hurt feelings over something in the past? Look to Jesus! Are you stressed out or panicky? Look to Jesus! Have you a sick loved one? Look to Jesus! Do you have cancer? Look to Jesus! Are you in prison? Look to Jesus! Are you a single parent? Look to Jesus! Likewise, Are you healthy? Look to Jesus! Are you blessed and happy? Look to Jesus! Is everything going your way? Look to Jesus! No matter what your situation . . . Look to Jesus! Look to Jesus! Look to Jesus! “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1st Peter 5:7).
Ye Must Be Born Again!
"In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ."

You Need HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
