Saved by a Look

YES, you may be saved by a look; and what can be more simple? But it must be a heart-look—not the mere casual glance of the passer-by, but the deep, earnest look of one who realizes who it is that bids him look, and why he has to look.
The bitten Israelite, dying from the serpent's bite, looked, believing that there was life in the look, and so there was. He looked only at the brazen serpent; he did not look at others; he did not look at himself. He felt death in himself, and he wanted life; and he looked to get life. And so must you.
Listen again to the words of Jesus: "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." (John 3:14, 1514And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: 15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:14‑15).)
