Day 195- Look To Jesus

My church has an outreach night where many of the single adults invite their non-believing friends to dinner, games, and a brief Bible study. The guy that normally teaches the study suddenly had to work. He called me this morning to ask if I would teach over John 3. I only had thirty minutes to speak so I spent part of the morning praying about what I should focus on within the chapter. I chose verse 14, "And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up…" I arrived to the study and found a fairly large and diverse group. There were many Christians that I recognized who had brought friends. One girl brought an Imam from a local Mosque! It was my privilege to share with the group the importance of looking to Jesus. When the Israelites were poisoned by the snakes and about to die they looked to the bronze serpent and lived. I informed everyone that we are all poisoned with sin and unless we look to Jesus we will surely die. I then shared with everyone what I see when I look to Jesus. I see his blood poured out on the cross, his burial, resurrection, and I now see him sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for us all. That is love.
