Sunday Reflection: Son of Man be lifted up just as Moses lifted up the serpent (Feb 4, 2018)

God’s love is manifested in sending his son Jesus to our poor conditions in the darkness of sin. The light of Jesus shined in this gloom. Those who accept the light of Jesus are redeemed and those who reject him to remain in the darkness of the world select their own condemnation. Those who were bitten by fiery snakes in the desert were saved by looking at the bronze serpent on a pole lifted up by Moses. Jesus the redeemer was lifted up in glory on a cross followed by his resurrection so that humanity could look at him with faith and be saved. Let us shine in the world with our truthful life after the model of Jesus who came as the light of the world.
