Looking Backward, Upward, and Forward at Jesus!

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.
