As Moses lifted up the serpent...


And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:14-15

In the same way as those bitten by fiery serpents in the wilderness could look in faith to the bronze serpent that Moses lifted up on a pole and live rather than die (Num. 21), so those who look in faith to Jesus and His atoning sacrifice on the cross will not be condemned to eternal death for their sins but be pardoned, forgiven and have everlasting life.

Grant, dear Jesus, that I look to You and Your cross in faith for forgiveness and life eternal. Amen.
