Lift Up Your Snakes for All to See

Passage: Numbers 21:4-9
Service Type:
When venom started to spread among the Israelites in exile, God sent snakes to show the people the source of their problem. Moses then took the power from the snake by casting it in bronze and lifting it up for all to see. What are the secret fears and snipings and venoms that we find in our midst? Can we bring them out in the open and deprive them of their power, or at least allow us to be healed (if not cured)?
