Welcome to Our Savior Hawaii's Online Sunday School! Today, is the fourth Sunday in Lent. Throughout Lent, we're journeying through the Bible and exploring stories of God's promises and presence in our lives. Let's continue to hear Moses' story and remember to look to Jesus!
- What was the best moment of the last week for you? The worst?
- How did you see God at work in the last week? What is your God sighting?

We’re nearing the end of Lent. Remember, Lent is a season of preparation, and today’s story has a lot to do with how we should look to God, especially in hard times. When there is danger or trouble, we look to God for the best way to live. In the season of Lent, we see God’s people turn to God after they make mistakes, and God guides them.
Then they set out from Mount Hor by way of the Red Sea to bypass the land of Edom, but the people became impatient because of the journey. The people spoke against God and Moses: “Why have you led us up from Egypt to die in the wilderness? There is no bread or water, and we detest this wretched food!” Then the Lord sent poisonous snakes among the people, and they bit them so that many Israelites died.
The people then came to Moses and said, “We have sinned by speaking against the Lord and against you. Intercede with the Lord so that he will take the snakes away from us.” And Moses interceded for the people.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Make a snake image and mount it on a pole. When anyone who is bitten looks at it, he will recover.” So Moses made a bronze snake and mounted it on a pole. Whenever someone was bitten, and he looked at the bronze snake, he recovered.
God is always with us. Sometimes we have a hard time remembering that God is with us, but today’s story reminds us to look for God even when it may seem hard.
