“(J)ust as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up . . .” John 3:14

 

Moses lifted up the serpent

so Israel could look at what was destroying them,

stare it down in faith,

and be saved.

 

The Son of Man . . . the Son of God . . . was lifted up . . .

 

Do we look upon God?

Is God destroying us?

 

We look at God given over to death . . .

 

The Son is lifted up, one with death,

so we can look at death, at what destroys us,

stare it down in faith,

and save all creation . . .
