Life is full of choices. We chose what to eat, where to go, what to wear and what to do every day of our lives. We make major choices concerning schooling, marriage, employment, and housing. But the biggest choice we make concerns the Lord Jesus Christ.
A SIMPLE PLAN - Vss. 14-16
Vs. 14 - See Numbers 21:4-9
Israel had sinned. Fiery serpents were sent as judgment. Moses was instructed to
make a brass serpent and put it on a pole, whoever looked at the serpent lived.
In similar fashion, Jesus was lifted up on the cross. He died for our sins.
2 Corinthians 5:21
Vss. 15-16 - Whoever looks to Jesus in faith, trusting Him as Savior, has eternal life.
A SINGLE PURPOSE - Vs. 17
Because Jesus was sinless, He could have condemned us all! However, Jesus came to earth not to condemn but to save.
A SPECIFIC PRONOUNCEMENT - Vss. 18-21
Vs. 18 - He that believes on Christ is not condemned.
He that doesn't believe on Christ is condemned.
Vss. 19-21 - Men love darkness rather than light.
