This week’s episode is in tribute to my mentor’s daughter. In life and in death she inspired others to lift their faces to the One Who could save them. That’s why Lauren Daigle’s song “Look Up Child” inspires us to explore Scripture today.
Let’s dive in to some key Scriptures where God’s people are called to look up and live.
On this episode I discuss:
- Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
- Read and keep on reading
- Listen to an audio version of Scripture
- Share with a friend
- Make a list
- Follow the cross-references
- Not getting discouraged when you encounter Scripture after Scripture you’ve never read before…don’t be discouraged, be inspired!
- My mom’s story of God’s inspiration and provision – Joshua 1:8
- Doing God’s work and building up the church – Ephesians 4:11-12
- Looking up to the Son of Man lifted up like the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness – John 3:9-12
- Following the cross-reference to Numbers 21 to see the story of the bronze serpent on a pole – Numbers 21:4-9
- Remembering the warning of idolizing God’s provision and worshiping it rather than God – 2 Kings 18:3-4

This Week’s Challenge
Use this episode as a catalyst to spend more thoughtful time in the Scriptures we briefly highlighted today. Study John 3 and Numbers 21, and don’t miss the danger zone we uncovered in 2 Kings 18. Let these references to “looking up” lead us to place our faith in Christ unto salvation, and continue to place our faith in His saving power for every situation we face until we meet Him face-to-face in eternity.
