Msg #1935 Things to Behold
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
Sunday my pastor of forty-years ago, Marvin Mungle preached some things we need to carefully Behold. Pilot started the thought in John 19 “Behold the man... Behold your king.” Isaiah 53 showed that the old rugged cross was necessary, vicarious, voluntary, and the supreme need of sinners. Behold the sinner. He is described in Ephesians as dead, yet walking according to this world, its prince, and the spirit that works disobedience... by nature the children of wrath. Consider too, all have sinned, all have come short. Behold the Love of God. “Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God” (1John 3:1a). Again Ephesians says, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us.” Further, God “so” loved the world.
Behold the Saviour. Luke 2 gives a personal message, “Behold I bring you good good tidings...” a present message, “unto you is born this day,” and a precious message, “A Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” Precious because, “Neither is there salvation in any other” (Acts 4:12) and also, “Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness...” (1Tim 3:16). Behold the sacrifice,... Behold the Lamb of God. “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins” (Heb 1:4),... “Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things... But with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish...” (1Pet 1:18-19). All must look to the Lamb of God.
Behold the invitation. “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” That invitation is still open.
