Numbers 21:9 And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived.
There were fiery serpents, mean, ruthless, serpents, biting God’s people. They had complained against God. When they cried out for relief He provided a brass serpent to be lifted up on a pole. If they would but look they would live. If they chose not to look then they would die.
In John 3 Jesus shows how that was a sign of what happens with Him. He is lifted up and all who will look to Him will be saved.
Man failed and God provided grace. That grace always points us to Calvary where you can get relief. Trust Jesus. Look to Him in your sin and failure. He will save!
