How's Your View?
Have you taken a look at the Saviour?
Have you thought about His
Have you peered within at your own sin,
and reflected upon His
“Thou shalt call His name Jesus,”
the angel Gabriel had
“He shall save His people from their sins”
- and they will
never be the same.
(Matthew 1:21; Luke 1:26, 31;
Have you felt emptiness in your own life,
and realized there must be

wondering what the future held
Like many lost souls searching,
seeking in the Apostles’
“I would see Jesus”

chosen to run the race?
(Galatians 3:1; Isaiah 64:6;
5:7; Hebrews 12:1-2)

abiding in His Word?
Is your sight purified by the blessed hope?
eagerly looking for the Lord?
(Philippians 3:20; Colossians
Titus 2:11-14; 1 John 2:28-3:3)
