2. Jesus is the object, focus, and desire of faith.

3. Where faith is, Jesus is everything and man is nothing.

4. Faith forgets everything about itself and centers alone in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin.

5. Faith is the union that unites the sinner to the Savior.

6. Faith is the hand that receives the Savior and His righteousness.

7. In faith there is a glorious exchange. The sinner gives his/her sin to Jesus and Jesus gives to the sinner His righteousness.

8. Faith is best known by its desires. That person has faith who desires Christ, desires holiness, and desires communion with God. “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness.” “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after Thee, O God.” “Unto you therefore which believe He is precious.” The bride in the Song of Solomon longs for her Bridegroom. Her heart goes out after Him with longing desires.

9. Jesus is the “object” of faith to which the sinner must look. He must forget even the exercise of faith itself, and look alone to “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. All his contemplations and all his thoughts must be totally focused upon and absorbed with Jesus and His sacrifice for sin.


Concluding thoughts:

“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world,” (John 1:29). Behold this Savior! Do you not see any beauty in Him? Does His dying, redeeming love not draw your heart to desire Him for your Savior? Do you not see a perfect suitability in His righteousness, His blood, to cover the mountains of your sins? Consider His sacrifice that He gave so that you might be saved. Outside of Christ there is no hope or salvation. You need a Refuge for your soul! You need to be washed from all of your sin. Cling then to Jesus for your salvation. Cast the entire weight of your soul upon Him. Wash away all your sins in the fountain of His blood. Outside of Him there is no life, no peace, no joy, and no hope. It is so sweet to rest one’s sin-weary soul upon Him. Surrender to Him all your heart, vile and sinful as it is, for He will not cast you away, (John 6:37). “This man receives sinners,” (Luke 15:2b).

Jesus now invites you, “Incline your ear, and come unto Me: hear, and your soul shall live,” (Isaiah 55:3). “Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else,” (Isaiah 45:22). Consider that word “Me”. The almighty and willing Savior of sinners calls you to Himself. Let all your contemplations and all your thoughts be totally absorbed and wrapped up with Him and His sacrifice for sin. “Cast yourself, in childlike faith, upon this atonement—‘Christ died for the ungodly,’ (Romans 5:6)—and you are saved!”

“But He was wounded (pierced through) for our transgressions, He was bruised (crushed) for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes (blows that cut in) we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
