Anyone ... can look ... and live. Numbers 21:8
A long time ago, God took the Israelites out of Egypt where they had been slaves.
Instead of obeying God in the desert, the Israelites complained. God sent a deadly sickness which only He could cure.
'Look at the brass serpent which Moses raised up and you will be healed,' God promised.
Everybody who simply looked was healed.
The serpent reminds us that by looking to Jesus dying on the Cross for our sins, we are made whole in God's sight.
Prayer: Father, thank You for forgiveness through Jesus. Amen.
