John 3:13-17

Jesus continues his instruction of Nicodemus with reference to Moses and the elevated serpent. Elevation—exaltation—is central to John’s theology. With it comes the understanding that God’s motivation to give his only son is love, love for all creation, especially humanity. Salvation is dependent upon that love.

You emptied yourself. You humbled yourself. You were obedient to your Father even to your death. How can I forget that? How can I ignore that? How do I measure up to that kind of love?
