Wednesday's Words of Wisdom...Pink on Looking to Jesus

"Man became a lost sinner by a look, for the first thing recorded of Eve in connection with the fall of our first parents is that 'The woman saw that the tree was good for food' (Gen. 3:6). In like manner, the lost sinner is saved by a look. The Christian life begins by looking: 'Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else' (Isa. 45:22). The Christian life continues by looking: 'let us run with patience the race which is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of faith' (Heb. 12:2). And at the end of the Christian life we are still to be looking for Christ: 'For our conversation (citizenship_ is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ' (Phil. 3:20). From first to last, the one thing required is looking at God's Son."
