God's Plan to Save Man (John 3:14-21)

Gtpministries.org – Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. It doesn’t feel like we have entered the fourth period of Lent in March and we deserve to always be grateful to God for the protection, health and safety given to us.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. The Gospel of John 3:14-21 records a conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus, a religious expert. Jesus used the parable of Moses raising the bronze serpent in the desert to save the Israelites who were bitten by poisonous snakes, as an illustration of salvation through His sacrifice on the cross. Jesus would be “exalted” on the cross to save humanity.

Jesus taught that God loved the world so He sent His Son, not to judge the world, but to save it. However, those who believe in Him will be saved, while those who do not believe will be judged by the truth. Light has come into the world, but men chose darkness because their deeds were evil. Those who do righteousness will come to the light, while those who do evil will love darkness.

The conversation between Jesus and Nicodemus provides insight into the nature of God’s love and His plan to save humanity. The analogy of the bronze serpent in the desert refers to the moment where the Israelites were saved from the bite of a poisonous snake by the mere sight of the bronze serpent held aloft by Moses.

Likewise, faith in Jesus Christ as the Son of Man lifted up on the cross brings salvation. “Exalting” Jesus on the cross reflects His sacrifice that removes sin and gives mankind the opportunity to live in salvation. This emphasizes the importance of faith as the key to obtaining eternal life.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus revealed that salvation comes through faith in Him as Savior. The parable of the bronze serpent illustrates that salvation is the result of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. This shows God’s infinite love, because He not only loved the world, but also gave His Son as a way of salvation.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. First, the message about the sacrifice of Jesus Christ as the way of salvation emphasizes the importance of sacrifice and forgiveness. In the midst of the complexity of modern life which is often filled with conflict and division, this message invites us all to practice an attitude of forgiveness, prioritize kindness, and seek ways of peace in all situations.

Second, how God’s love for the world is something universal and unlimited. It emphasizes the importance of compassion, empathy, and concern for others, regardless of differences in culture, religion, or social background.

Third, the call to live in light and avoid darkness teaches us all to choose truth and integrity in all aspects of life, both in personal actions and in social and political policies.

Fourth, as believers, we are called to be witnesses of God’s love to the world. In the multicultural and multireligious context of Indonesia, this message invites us all to practice tolerance, respect differences, and work together to create social justice and sustainable peace. All of this refers to the call to live according to the teachings of Christ, bringing peace and love to others.
