Christ Lifted UpApril 30, 2015 David Hierlihy
Not long after the Israelites had been rescued from slavery under Pharaoh, king of Egypt, they started complaining and rebelling against God, bringing upon themselves judgment in the form of venomous snakes that bit the people. But God in His mercy provided a remedy. Moses hung a brass snake upon a pole - and all who looked upon it lived. The application is simple. Sin causes suffering, sadness, and death. The remedy? Christ himself, just like that brass snake, would be lifted up on a cross. And guilty sinners who look to Him will be saved. Have YOU ever looked to Christ to have to have your sins forgiven?
