Look and Live  the Power of Acceptance for Salvation – Prophet Wisdom Aha writes

In his profound message, Prophet Wisdom Aha draws us into the heart of God’s love and redemption through the simple yet powerful concept of “Look and Live.”

This concept, rooted in John 3:14-15, invites us to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross and the transformative power of accepting Him as our Savior.

Scripture Passage: John 3:14-15 (NIV)

“Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”

Today, let us journey into the depths of God’s love and mercy as we explore the profound message of salvation encapsulated in the simple yet profound words, “Look and live.” These words resonate with the timeless truth of redemption found in Jesus Christ, who was lifted up on the cross for the salvation of humanity.

In the Gospel of John, Jesus draws upon an Old Testament story to illustrate the transformative power of faith and acceptance. He says, “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him” (John 3:14-15).

The imagery of Moses lifting up the bronze snake in the wilderness is a powerful foreshadowing of the crucifixion of Christ. In the wilderness, the Israelites were afflicted by poisonous snakes, and many were dying. But God, in His mercy, provided a way of salvation.

He instructed Moses to fashion a bronze snake and lift it up on a pole. Anyone who looked upon the bronze snake would be healed and saved from death.

Similarly, Jesus, the Son of Man, was lifted up on the cross for the salvation of humanity. He bore our sins and the weight of the world’s transgressions upon Himself.

And just as the Israelites had to look upon the bronze snake to be saved, so too must we look upon Christ and accept Him as our Savior to receive eternal life.

The act of looking upon Christ is more than just a physical gaze; it is an act of faith and surrender. It is an acknowledgment of our need for salvation and a willingness to trust in the redemptive work of Christ on the cross.

My dear friends, salvation are not something we can earn or achieve through our own efforts. It is a gift freely offered by God to all who believe in His Son. As the apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIV), “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Today, I urge you to look upon the cross of Christ with eyes of faith and to accept Him as your Lord and Savior. Look upon the One who was lifted up for your sake, and receive the gift of eternal life that He offers to all who believe.

May the message of “Look and live” resonate deeply within your hearts, leading you to experience the transformative power of God’s love and grace.
