Look upon Me

The beginning, the middle, and end of your course must be dissatisfaction with self, and satisfaction with Christ. Be content to be satisfied with faith’s glorious object, and let faith itself be forgotten. Faith, however perfect, has nothing to give you. It points you to Jesus. It bids you look away from itself to Him. It bids you look away from itself to Him. It says, “Christ is all.” It bids you look to him who says, “Look upon me;” who says, “Fear not, I am the first and the last; I am he that liveth and was dead, and behold I am alive forevermore.”

Horatius Bonar
