So many people often think that salvation through Jesus Christ is complicated and difficult to gain. However, the Bible tells us of an event in the Old Testament that shows us how simple and easy salvation through Christ really is.
Numbers 21:5-9 states: "And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived."
In this passage from Numbers, God beautifully illustrates the wonderful story of salvation through Jesus Christ to Moses and the children of Israel. The serpent was a representation of the curse that God had placed upon Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden when they sinned against Him. This curse is the curse of sin and it remains on the earth to this very day. But when Jesus died, he was made a curse for us so that through Him we can experience freedom and eternal life.
