Looking Backward, Upward, and Forward at Jesus!

Looking Backward, Upward and Forward at Jesus.

Reader, remember these three looks at Jesus, backward, upward, forward; and make use of them every day.T

he first is the secret of peace of conscience: no peace unless we look backward at the cross of Christ!

The second is the secret of real daily strength and comfort in our walk with God: little solid comfort unless we look upward to Christ’s intercession!

The third is the secret of bright and cheerful hope in a dark world: no bright prospect unless we look forward to Christ coming again! Backward, upward, forward: these are the three ways in which we should look at Jesus.

The person that looks at the cross is a wise person; the person that looks at the cross and the intercession also, is wiser still; but they that look at all three, the cross, the intercession, and the coming of Jesus, they are wisest of all.
