Look To Jesus And Live!
By Joseph Prince
People have asked me what the value of seeing Jesus is. They say, “Pastor Prince, you talk about seeing Jesus all the time. What value is there in doing that? I’d rather you give me principles for success. It’s more practical.”
Well, the wonder of it is that when the Israelites in the Old Testament were bitten by snakes and were dying, those who looked to the Lord were healed (Numbers 21:8–9). Actually, they looked to a bronze serpent on a pole, which typified our Lord Jesus on the cross, as He became a curse for us on that cross (Galatians 3:13). Isn’t it amazing that these people were healed just by looking? They simply looked to the Lord and they lived!
So I pray in Jesus’ name that you’ll have a hunger to see Jesus. Every time you hear a sermon or read the Bible, you want to see Jesus and behold His glory. Ask the Holy Spirit to open up the Scriptures to you so that you can encounter Jesus. And as you fix your eyes on Him, you will be transformed from glory to glory (2 Corinthians 3:18). You will find peace for your soul, strength for your body and clarity for your mind. Symptoms of death will give way to manifestations of His abundance and resurrection life!
