Summary: How to be saved?
Look unto Me
Isa 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
Is just a look enough?
Should we do something more?
Look to me only ……
1. Because the kingdom is His
1Ch 29:11-12 Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.
