20 Days of Stories You Have Probably Never Heard

MEMORY VERSE
Nehemiah 1:11
O Lord, I beseech You, may Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant and the prayer of Your servants who delight to revere Your name, and make Your servant successful today and grant him compassion before this man.

DAY 6: Numbers 21:4-9: Afraid of Snakes?
The children of Israel complained once again, and in response, God sent a plague of snakes. When they confessed their sin, God instructed Moses to make a bronze snake. When a person was bitten, they could look upon this bronze image and live.

In John 3:14-15, Jesus uses the bronze snake event to describe the Cross. We must look to Jesus for salvation from our sin and lostness. There is no other way.
