There is None Other Name

"Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth : for I am God, and there is none else." So spake the prophet Isaiah, the inspired of God, he whose prophecies regarding the Messiah's birth, passion, glory, rejection by the Jews, and acceptance by the Gentiles, are so exact as to have earned for him the name of "Gospel Prophet." Are we to conclude God did not mean just that, and that we are to make use of all material means at our command or within our reach, asking Him to "bless the means"? Would the ancient prophet so have interpreted his own words? Shall we employ the most skilful physicians with their experiments, their surgery, their operations, their narcotics and an-sthetics? Are we obeying this plain command of God, "Look unto Me"? We are not commanded to drink copiously and often of the mineral waters in our vicinity, because therein is our remedy for disease, weakness, pain, but the command is, "Look unto Me and be ye saved.

Saved from sin, saved from sickness, "all the ends of the earth." saved from evil in whatever form it presents itself,—weariness, pain. God does not desire the children of His love to depend on any but Himself. He is abundantly able and more than willing to supply the need of every one. How then can they who call on His name and claim to be following him neglect this command, so plain, so easily understood, that he who runs may read.
