Too Bright

One bright summer day a Christian was walking along a country road, and came to a man who was hard at work. He began to talk with him, and soon learned he doubted the truth of the Bible. The Christian said to him, "Well, my friend, just look up at the sun overhead."
"I can't," said the man. "It's too bright for my eyes."
"Now, friend, if you can't look at the sun, how will you be able to look at its Maker?" rejoined the Christian earnestly, and then he went on his way.
The last sentence caught the man's attention.
How could he ever behold such glory? The words stayed in his mind, tearing to pieces all his self-confidence. Before long he found real, abiding and eternal peace by looking to God in humble repentance for the forgiveness of his sins.
Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:2222Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (Isaiah 45:22).)
