Life Isn't Fair!
Fourth in the Sermon Series "Return From Exile" speaks to the experience of being exiled by unfair and undeserved cirmcumstances. As the Israelites complained about their plight in the desert to Moses, they were afflicted with deadly snake bites. God instructed Moses to raise a bronze serpent on a pole that anyone afflicted with a snake bite would be healed. When we find ourselves struggling with the unfairness of life to whom do we look? If we look to ourselves we get nowhere. If we look upon Christ, lifted up on the Cross for us, we receive healing from the poison of sin and know what it means to have the gift of eternal life.
