DAILY READINGS: Gen. 26; Job 32:1-33:33; Matt. 13:44-14:12

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up. John 3:14
When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am he… John 8:28
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. John 12:32

These three statements of the Lord all referred to His crucifixion. Through our Saviour’s death, He has brought us life, just as when Moses lifted up the serpent on a pole. Secondly, His death proved that He was the Son of Man. Lastly, with arms open wide He draws all people to Himself. Have you come to Him for life? —Rex Trogdon

Lifted up was He to die, it is finished was His cry; Now in heaven
exalted high: Hallelujah! What a Saviour! —Philip P. Bliss
