Look to me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
I. The everlasting God, He who alone is God, declares Himself to be THE SOURCE OF SALVATION.
II. THE UNIVERSALITY OF THE PLAN OF SALVATION. "All the ends of the earth." Men of all tribes and kingdoms shall be made to feel the power of Almighty grace. The plan of salvation is adapted to every variety of circumstance. The monarch on the throne of vast empire — he is seated there in the sight of God a poor rebel, and he needs salvation. Or take the other extreme — the lowliest and obscurest of the children of men — he is a sinner before God, an immortal creature.
III. GOD'S SIMPLE COMMAND to the guilty and the lost, while announcing Himself as the Source of salvation, and while proclaiming its universality, is "Look unto Me."
1. To look unto God, as the Source of salvation, implies knowledge of Him.
2. The exercise of faith.
3. Confidence in God.
4. We may give emphasis to the expression, "Unto Me." God requires that you should look away from all other objects which would interfere with the entire yielding up of the whole soul to Him.
5. There should be in the mind of the believer a full assurance that He is able to save, and willing to save.
(G. Fisk, LL. B.)
