Where Are You Looking Today
“And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up.” John 3:14
What is this scripture talking about? God commanded Moses to construct a bronze serpent and place it on a pole. Why? The Word of God says that whoever looked on that bronze serpent was healed.
Christ on the cross, bearing the sins of mankind upon His own body is powerfully pictured by this symbol. Serpents had bitten the people in the wilderness, and many of them were dying. God told Moses that if the people would look upon the bronze serpent, they would live.
Those who look believe for a healing. Whoever believes that Jesus came and died, and is the Savior and the Healer, will be healed. Whoever looks up to the Lord Jesus on the cross with eyes of faith will find wholeness.
Look to Him today and in Him you will find all that you need. I love the words to the great hymn “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.”
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
As we look upon the precious Lord Jesus all else fades away.
