Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32). That is primarily a statement of truth about His work through His death on the cross, but it is also true of our service for Him: when we lift Jesus up rather than ourselves, men and women are attracted to Him.
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so also Jesus, Son of God and Son of man, was lifted up when He was crucified and condemned upon the cross for the sins of the whole world. … Jesus, when He was lifted up upon the cross, paid in full the just penalty for the sins of all people. His resurrection is proof.
I would encourage you that as we sing this song during our worship time, take the time to reflect on the resurrection of Christ and identity all that Jesus has done for you. We will continue to sing and declare that King Jesus is High and Lifted Up.
