(The story that Jesus is talking about with Nicodemus is in Numbers 21:4-9.)
The third verse sounds a lot like a verse we know. For God so loved the world…that is the reason behind Christmas. Just like in Numbers, we are righteously under the punishment of God. We are dying and have no way to save ourselves. But God has provided. The bronze snake on a stake in the Old Testament is just a picture of the Son of God hung on a cross in the New. But the premise is the same: Lift your eyes, believe God, and be saved.
How will you ring the bells for Jesus this season?
Come with me as we grow in fellowship with each other and our Savior to whom belongs the Amazing Escape from sin and death and the Amazing Journey into glorious life.
