|“When you lift up the Son of Man…” —John 8:28|
When the Son of Man is lifted up, Jesus will draw all people to Himself (Jn 12:32) so that they may realize that He is God (Jn 8:28), believe that He is Healer, and receive eternal life (Jn 3:14-15).

|Prayer: Jesus, may I decrease so that You may increase (Jn 3:30).|
|Promise: “You will surely die in your sins unless you come to believe that I AM.” —Jn 8:24|
