Look to Christ – Not The Law

A friend of mine once asked a certain minister in London what he thought of the law as the believer’s only rule of life? He replied, “The believer must look with one eye to Christ, and with the other to the law.” But he brought no proof from the Word of God. My friend replied, “Then every believer must squint.” However, there is no call for squinting in this matter; Christ says, “Look unto me, and be saved, all ye ends of the earth,” (Isaiah 45:22) and adds, “I will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on me,” (Isaiah 26:3) and again, “…run the race set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:2)

Looking with one eye to the law and with the other to Christ, is erring from Wisdom’s rule of direction which is, “Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.” (Proverbs 4:25-26)
