8 Action-View Topic Notes Window Lesson 5 *July 26–August 1 How to Be Saved Sabbath Afternoon Read for This Week’s Study: Luk_5:27-32; Luk_13:1-5; Mat_22:2-14; Zec_3:1-5; Joh_8:30-31; Luk_14: Memory Text: “ ‘And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life’ ” (Joh_3:14-15, NKJV). As the Israelites were being bitten by snakes in the desert, God instructed Moses to make a bronze one and place it on a pole so that whoever was bitten could look at it and be saved. What healing properties can a bronze snake have? None. Healing came only from God. By looking at the bronze statue, however, the Israelites demonstrated their faith in God as their only hope of life and salvation. The Lord wanted to teach them a spiritual lesson. He transformed a symbol of death into a symbol of life. That bronze serpent was a symbol of Christ, who became the Bearer of our sins in order to save us. By faith, we can all look to Christ lifted up on the cross and find a cure from the deadly sting of the old serpent, Satan. Otherwise, we are fated to die in our sins. The Word of God expresses what should be painfully obvious: as human beings, we are sinners in need of grace. That grace has been offered to us in Christ Jesus. This week we will look at Jesus’ teachings regarding the simple practical steps needed for salvation. This is the “normal” view of a typical Sabbath School lesson. Let’s see what e-Sword can provide to enhance your understanding of the lesson.
