THE WEEKLY WORD
The steps to a victorious life
(Living the life God intended for us)
Look Up and Live
In Numbers the children of Israel complained against God, because they
faced a small set back after having a great victory. Although they were getting manna from Heaven, they declared that they had no food, and no water and they loathe this worthless bread.
God hear the complaint and sent fiery serpents to bite the children of Israel and many of them died. Ungrateful children are often disciplined.
Upon being chastised by God they called on Moses to pray on their behalf because they had sinned against God.
Although we are disciplined God stills love us.
God instructs Moses to make a brass snake and place on a pole and anyone who is bitten will look up they will live.
John 3:14 "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up.
Many of us may have rebelled against God and are now being bitten
by the fiery serpents of Life, but all we need to do is look up and accept the Salvation of the Lord.
