God teaches us the truth that He alone is God by telling us to “Look unto me, and be ye saved all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”

Spurgeon 3Take this, dear friends, for a new year’s text, both ye who love the Lord, and ye who are only looking for the first time. Christian! in all thy troubles through this year, look unto God and be saved. In all thy trials and afflictions look unto Christ, and find deliverance. In all thine agony, poor soul, in all thy repentance for thy guilt, look unto Christ, and find pardon. This year remember to put thine eyes heavenward and thine heart heavenward too. Remember this day, that thou find round thyself a golden chain, and put one link of it in the staple in heaven. Look unto Christ; fear not. There is no stumbling, when a man walks with his eyes up to Jesus. He that looked at the stars fell into the ditch; but he that looks at Christ walks safely. Keep your eyes up all the year long. “Look unto him, and be ye saved,” and remember that “he is God, and beside him there is none else.” And thou poor trembler, what sayest thou? Wilt thou begin the year by looking unto him. You know how sinful you are this morning; you know how filthy you are, and yet it is possible that before you open your pew door, and get into the aisle, you will be as justified as the apostles before the throne of God. It is possible that ere you- foot treads the threshold of your door, you will have lost the burden that has been on your back, and you will go on your way, singing, “I am forgiven, I am forgiven; I am a miracle of grace; this day is my spiritual birthday.” Oh! that it might be such to many of you, that at last I might say, “Here am I, and the children thou hast given me.” Hear this convinced sinner! “This poor man cried, and the Lord delivered him out of his distresses.” Oh! taste and see that the Lord is good! Now believe on him; now cast thy guilty soul upon his righteousness; now plunge thy black soul into the bath of his blood; now put thy naked soul at the door of the wardrobe of his righteousness, now seat thy famished soul at the feast of plenty! Now “look!” How simple does it seem! And yet it is the hardest thing in the world to bring men to. They never will do it, till constraining grace makes them. Yet there it is, “Look!” Go thou away with that thought. “Look unto me, and be ye saved all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.”
