Deuteronomy 32:15-52; Hosea 2:1-3:5 ; Luke 17:20-18:14

Look unto me, and be ye saved. Isaiah 45:22

This is a delightful, simple text. Even a young child can understand it. It was through this verse that the preacher C. H. Spurgeon was saved at 15. Because of a snowstorm he turned into a little chapel where there were only a handful of people. The preacher couldn’t make it, so a man stood in the pulpit and read this verse. “Look unto me”, he declared urging the few souls to look to Jesus. Seeing Spurgeon in the balcony he pointed his finger, “Young man you look very miserable and you always will be miserable.” Then he said, “Young man, look to Jesus Christ.” Right there and then Spurgeon trusted Christ.

There is life for a look at the crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee. —Amelia Hull
