PostSubject: SEEMS TOO SIMPLE   Wed Aug 21, 2013 2:56 pm

Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. JOHN 3:14-15

During the time in the wilderness after their exodus from Egypt, God's people faced judgment, so God sent fiery serpents among them. When they confessed their sin, Moses gave them God's directive for relief and set up a bronze serpent on a pole. He told the people to look to it and live.

That made no sense. The people surely must have questioned, "What's the medicine we are to take for these snake bites? Who's going to kill the snakes? What else are we supposed to do?" This remedy seemed way too simple! But that was God's directive. The people sinned; they died. They looked up; they lived.

Isn't that what God tells us today? He lifted up His Son on the cross for us, and to many it seems way too simple. But God's plan is that we look up to the cross and receive His gift of life. For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16). There is no other medicine; no other cure; nothing else for us to do. God's simple, gracious plan brings eternal life to us by faith in Jesus.

INSIGHT: The Old Testament pointed to Christ in so many ways. And this particular event pointed to Christ's death on the cross and how we need to keep our eyes on Him to be saved from spiritual death.

Dear Lord, Impress upon me how important it is to keep my eyes on Jesus and how He was lifted up on that cross for me and my sins. Thank you for how much you love me. Help me to take You more seriously each day I have left here on this earth. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
