John 3:14-15 New International Version (NIV)
14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”
When we meditate and think about scripture it is key that we keep our eyes on Jesus. When we keep our eyes on Jesus in trust, and we are devoted to him, this allows us to know God. The Gospels holds transformational power.
