Jesus said, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
From sermon4kids.com: “. . . Eternal life — what a gift! And all we have to do to receive it is believe . . .”
Scripture: March 11, 2018—Fourth Sunday in Lent—Numbers 21:4–9; Ephesians 2:1–10; Psalm 107:1–3, 17–22; & John 3:14–21.
Collect: Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Reflection: What does the light of God’s truth reveal about your life? Are there parts of your life that you want to hide from God? Can you imagine what it would be like to live completely transparent to God’s piercing light?
