向外看,向上看

向外看,向上看

 司布真

經文: 「地極的人都當仰望我,就必得救;因為我是上帝,再沒有別神。」(以賽亞書四十五︰22)


        這是應許中的應許,也是我們信仰的根基;只要向這位公義的上帝望一眼,我們就可得救。這是多麼輕而易舉的事,而這要求也多麼的合理,因為我們既是受造之物,我們理當回歸造物主的懷抱;我們流蕩在外已經夠久了,我們早該回轉仰望耶穌。祂邀請我們回到羊圈,並應許賜下救恩。

 

        只要「望祂一眼」,我們何不立即行動﹖我們不用費什麼力氣,只是輕輕鬆鬆地仰望那寶座,就是祂升天後所坐的地方。只要你定晴望祂一眼,不用你付出什麼,或費什麼心血,也不用你用智慧或力氣,就必得救。我們所需要的都在主裏,我們仰望上帝,求祂賞賜我們所需要的,祂必要在主裏成就一切。

 

        來吧,遠方的人,看這裡吧!地極的人,把你們的眼睛向上看吧,即使住在地球最偏遠的人,也可看到普照的陽光,所以,即使你在死亡邊緣,地獄門口,只要你向眾光之父,生命之主望一眼,主耶穌的救恩就要臨到你。

 

The Outward, Upward Look
 

Scripture: "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).

        This is a promise of promises. It lies at the foundation of our spiritual life. Salvation comes through a look at Him who is "a just God and a Saviour." How simple is the direction! "Look unto me." How reasonable is the requirement! Surely the creature should look to the Creator. We have looked elsewhere long enough; it is time that we look alone to Him who invites our expectation and promises to give us His salvation.

        Only a look! Will we not look at once? We are to bring nothing in ourselves but to look outward and upward to our LORD on His throne, whither He has gone up from the cross. A look requires no preparation, no violent effort: it needs neither wit nor wisdom, wealth nor strength. All that we need is in the LORD our God, and if we look to Him for everything, that everything shall be ours, and we shall be saved.

        Come, far-off ones, look hither! Ye ends of the earth, turn your eyes this way! As from the furthest regions men may see the sun and enjoy his light, so you who lie in death’s borders at the very gates of hell may by a look receive the light of God, the life of heaven, the salvation of the LORD Jesus Christ, who is God and therefore able to save.
