Isaac Ambrose (1604 - 1663/1664) was an English Puritan pastor and theologian. The full title of this long-beloved work was "Looking Unto Jesus: The Soul's Eyeing of Jesus as Carrying on the Great Work of Man's Salvation." Its focus on Christ provides a refreshing contrast to some of the more introspective works of other Puritans.
"Christ alone is the treasury, storehouse, magazine, of the free goodness and mercy of the Godhead," Ambrose exclaims. "In him we are justified, sanctified, saved. He is the way, the truth, and the life; he is honour, riches, beauty, health, peace, and salvation; all the spiritual blessings wherewith we are enriched, are in and by Christ: God hears our prayers by Christ; God forgives our iniquities through Christ; all we have, and all we expect to have, hangs only on Christ; he is the golden hinge, upon which all our salvation turns."
