For faithful disciples of our Lord and Master, “looking unto Jesus” is an essential part of everyday life. They consider his example, seeking to learn from him, attempting to live like him. They rejoice in his greatness, his mercy, his love, his gentleness. They see in him one who – whilst bearing the nature of his fellows – manifested his God and Father to perfection. Right throughout God’s word, we find prophecies of Jesus Christ, and allusions to his work. Such things abound with encouragement, with challenges, with promises for us. Do we look unto him? Do we long for his coming as we should? And will he find faith on the earth when he comes again?
