Lifted up

Just as Moses lifted up the servant in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up.
John 3:14
Lifted up - but not in a good way
lifted up - but not with any sense of glory
lifted up- in the last way we'd imagine
Lifted up - the Jesus way
meant an excruciating death
at the hands of those he thwarted
lifted up alongside real  criminals
lifted up on a cross
on a hillside
lifted up - for public execution.
Lifted up
displaying love
that is out of this world.
Lifted up
taking us to the heights
because he plumbed the depths of death
in love for us.
