Over 3000 years ago, God’s people became impatient with him, complained against their leaders and cursed the food God had provided for them. Their punishment for these sins was death by snakebite, but anyone who looked at a bronze statue of a snake on a pole was saved from dying.
Dear friend, have you felt impatient with God recently? Did you complain against him? Or have you even angrily cursed the blessings that God has given you?
The bible teaches that just like the Israelites who only needed to look at the bronze snake on the pole, you only need to look in faith to Jesus on the cross. And as you look up to Jesus, you will receive eternal life instead of punishment for your sins!
Don’t feel sad or condemned, you won’t be punished by God – even if you have cursed him. Just believe in Jesus, and you shall live!
[Numbers 21:4-9, John 3:14-15]
