Look unto Jesus in the Scriptures

(Theodore Monod, “Looking Unto Jesus!” 1874)
 
“Looking unto Jesus!” Hebrews 12:2 
 
Only three words, but in these three words is the whole secret of spiritual life. 
 
Look unto Jesus in the Scriptures, to learn there . . .
  who He is,
  what He has done,
  what He gives,
  what He desires.

Looking unto Jesus in the Scriptures, we find . . .
  in His character–our pattern;
  in His teachings–our instruction;
  in His precepts–our law;
  in His promises–our support;
  in His person and in His work–a full satisfaction provided for every need of our souls. 

“You study the Scriptures thoroughly because you think in them you possess eternal life, and it is these same Scriptures that testify about Me!” John 5:39

Oh! the bitter pain and sorrow,
That a time could ever be, 
When I proudly said to Jesus, 
All for self–and none for Thee!”

Yet He found me; I beheld Him, 
Bleeding on the accursed tree; 
And my wistful heart said faintly, 
Some for self–and some for Thee.” 

Day by day His tender mercy, 
Healing, helping, full and free,
Brought me lower, while I whispered, 
Less for self–and more for Thee.” 

Higher than the highest heavens, 
Deeper than the deepest sea; 
Lord, Thy love at last has conquered, 
None for self–and all for Thee!”
