Looking unto Jesus
Looking unto Jesus
“They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.” Psalm 34:5
Suggested Further Reading:
1 Timothy 2:1-7
See there he sits in heaven, he has led captivity captive, and now sits at the right hand of God, for ever making intercession for us.
Can your faith picture him today? Like a great high priest of old, he stands with outstretched arms: there is majesty in his demeanour, for he is no mean cringing suppliant.
He does not beat his breast, nor cast his eyes upon the ground, but with authority he pleads, enthroned in glory now.
There on his head is the bright shining mitre of his priesthood, and look you, on his breast are glittering the precious stones whereon the names of his elect are everlastingly engraved; hear him as he pleads, hear you not what it is?—is that your prayer that he is mentioning before the throne?
The prayer that this morning you offered before you came to the house of God, Christ is now offering before his Father’s throne.
The vow which just now you uttered when you said,
“Have pity and have mercy,”—he is now uttering there.
He is the Altar and the Priest, and with his own sacrifice he perfumes our prayers.
And yet, mayhap, you have been at prayer many a day, and had no answer; poor weeping suppliant, you have sought the Lord and he has not heard you, or at least not answered you to your soul’s delight; you have cried unto him, but the heavens have been as brass, and he has shut out your prayer, you are full of darkness and heaviness on account of this,
“Look to him, and be lightened.”
If you do not succeed, he will; if your intercession be unnoticed, his cannot be passed away; if your prayers can be like water spilt on a rock which cannot be gathered up, yet his prayers are not like that, he is God’s Son, he pleads and must prevail.
The prayers of the true seeker and of believers are not a waste of effort; they are not like letters lost in the post, but reach the throne of God (Acts 10:4; Revelation 5:8).
But only praying in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ is accepted; prayers addressed to saints, to false gods or to the dead are always turned away—“not known here.”
Sermon no. 195
23 May (1858)
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you, what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free, I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask. Amen..

“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, not in its fashion and manner, but in the truth which it contains.
