Bronze Serpent and Jesus



What would be an obscure story from the Israelites journey through the wilderness is used by Jesus to teach Nicodemus about Himself and the offer of eternal life. Jesus will be lifted up (like the bronze serpent) and those who look to Him in faith will find better than healing from deadly snake venom. They will be saved from sin and eternal perishing.

Moses and Our Rock



Moses has faithfully led the people through forty years since the exodus from Egypt. While not a perfect man, he has a good track record. But even Moses had a bad day and let the LORD down. But the LORD has His plan and our failures cannot thwart His plan. The Rock of our salvation will provide for us. And that day has lessons for us.

Purpose in the Wilderness



The children of Israel refused to trust God and questioned His love, preferring instead to die in the wilderness than enter the promised land. So the LORD gave them death in the wilderness for the next forty years. But God had other purposes for the wilderness for the children of those generations of rebels. His mercy may not always feel like mercy, if we learn the lessons of the wilderness, we are prepared for our promised land of heaven.

Moses Remembers the LORD



On the edge of the Promised Land and having heard how wonderful the place is, ten spies lead the congregation into forgetting the LORD and rejecting Him and His Promised Land. Hurt and angry, the LORD tests Moses to see if he will intercede once again for these rebellious people. Moses pleads according to the instructions God gave him at Mount Sinai, rescuing the people from righteous destruction.

Missing the blessing



Ten of the spies forgot what they knew to be true once they saw what was ahead. Thus they doubted and believed lies. When we forget the truth, we are just as vulnerable to doubt and fear. Let’s remind ourselves today of what is eternally true.
