We Must Do The Lifting
| Christ said,
"As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so much the
Son of man be lifted up" (John 3: 14). He was lifted up on the cross,
from the tomb and into heaven. Those who believe on Him should not perish.
But there is another sense in which Christ must be lifted up before the world. His teaching, His sacrifice, His coming again, His judgment must be declared to all men lest they not be prepared when He comes again. Society cannot be as it ought to be without the way of Christ dominant in the lives of people. And who will do this lifting?
That is my mission and yours. We, His disciples, must preach His gospel to the world. The task is heavy and the fruits sometimes small. But be that as it may, we are to lift up Christ by word and deed. Will you be doing your part in this work? (See Category 7; Lesson 13 for more on this.)
