Look to the Cross

Some are saying, Oh, that the world were crucified to me, and I to the world! Oh that my heart were as dead as a stone to the world, and alive to Jesus! Do you truly wish it? Look then to the cross! Behold the amazing gift of love. Salvation is promised to a look. Sit down like Mary and gaze upon a crucified Jesus. So will the world become a dim and dying thing. When you gaze upon the sun, it makes everything else dark; when you taste honey, it makes everything else tasteless: so when your soul feeds on Jesus it takes away the sweetness of all earthly things; praise, pleasure, fleshly lusts, all lose their sweetness. Keep a continued gaze. Run, looking unto Jesus. Look, till the way of salvation by Jesus fills up the whole horizon, so glorious and peace-speaking. So will the world be crucified to you, and you unto the world”
