By His Wounds – Just One Look

A man of sorrows
Despised and forsaken of men
Acquainted with grief and sickness. -Isa 53:3

Pierced through for our transgressions
Crushed for our iniquities. -Isa 53:5

Oppressed and afflicted
A Lamb led to slaughter. -Isa 53:7

His head and brow pierced with a crown of thorns -Mt 27:29;Jn 19
His back scourged -Isa 50:6;Mt 27:26
His hands and feet pierced with nails -Ps 22:16
His heart pierced with this cry:
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from the words of my groaning? -Ps 2:1

His side pierced with a spear, bringing a sudden flow
A cleansing flow of blood and water. -Jn 19:34

By His wounds we are healed. -Isa 53:5

Isaiah 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

 

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

“Can you not even now give one look to him who died for you? Will you not turn the eye of faith that way, and trust him who was nailed to the tree on your behalf?” – Charles Spurgeon

Behold our Lord Jesus Christ and be forever changed!
Behold Him TODAY!

Just One Look
©2009 Jerry Bouey

Just one look to Jesus will bring healing to the soul;
Just one look to Heaven and the heart will be made whole;
Just one moment to see Him – just one glimpse of Him today;
Falling in love with Jesus is only just one look away.

 

 

 

 

One look away from the world, one look away from your sin,
One look away from your idols – looking only unto Him;
Just one look towards the Saviour, one turn away from the past,
One heart reaching towards Jesus, looking only to Him at last.

Just one look to Jesus, just the simple touch of faith;
Just one heart that hungers for something real in its place;
Just one conscience that senses there must be something greater;
Just one longing within your soul to know your own Creator.

Just one look to Jesus, a glance and then a stare;
Just one look to Jesus, to the Lord who really cares;
One look that leads to salvation, one look that’s full of faith;
One look that reveals the Saviour, one look that saves by grace.

Just one look to Jesus, the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Just one look to the Master brings calm within the strife;
Just one look filled with hope, one look that brings perfect peace;
One look towards the Saviour and the inward struggles cease.

 

Just one look to Jesus.
Just one look.
