HOW TO BE SAVED BY YOUR GOOD LOOKS

The good looking young man stood reading the billboard outside the Church. It declared:

“HOW TO BE SAVED BY YOUR GOOD LOOKS”

This sounded just right for him. This might be an easy religion to follow.

He listened as the preacher gave his first text:

“LOOK unto Me and be saved, for I am God and there is no other.” 
[Isaiah 45:22]

The young man listened as He heard of how the Lord Jesus, although He was totally sinless, was crucified, bearing the sin of which he was guilty. He heard how God the Father poured out His wrath on Jesus who willingly bore the penalty for his sin. He heard that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life and he looked unto Him.

Then the preacher gave his second text:

“LOOKING unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith”
[Hebrews 12:2]

This time the young man saw a Risen Redeemer, able to save, able to keep, to preserve, to work IN a person to empower him to live a victorious life.

Then the preacher gave his third text:

“LOOKING for that blessed hope
and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.”
[Titus 2:13]

 So this young man was saved by his good looks:

At the Saviour, DYING for him;

At the Saviour, LIVING for him;

At the Saviour, COMING again for him.

For those who do not know the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and do not have a relationship with God the Father . . .

There is life for a look at the crucified One:
There is life at this moment for you.

    • Thought I’d gone off the rails? No fear! My Father has a tight hold on me and He assures me that He still continues His work in me and will do so until I am presented faultless before the throne.

      What an amazing Saviour!
      What an amazing Father God!

    • We need to keep on looking, Deb, for victory in this life – and for His coming. I don’t think it will be long. THEN we will see Him as He is and we will worship Him with NO distractions.

      What an amazing God!

    This is a wonderful confirmation of some recent considerations I’ve had.
    It is when I allow my eyes and heart to wander that I begin to feel loneliness or confusion or discouragement. Simply looking at Jesus can be so humbling, convicting, encouraging and healing.

    • I’m thinking of the chorus “So forget about yourself and concentrate on Him”
      When we do, our problems seem to become so much smaller and lose their power.
      He is a loving Father who undertakes for us because He loves us.

      What an amazing God!
