Many Christians struggle to mature in Christ because they don’t know what to do next or that God has called them to grow. When people stop growing spiritually, they will not be able to honor God with their lives or have the fulfillment, peace, or joy that Jesus offers.
Our articles show how the truths of the Bible, especially the love of Jesus, affect our lives on an everyday level. When Christians use our resources, they are encouraged to spiritual maturity.
Looking Upward exists because if we continually grow in Christ, we will have a life-giving relationship with Jesus.
The Heart Behind our Work
If my sermons kept people from reading the Bible for themselves, I would like to see the whole stock in a blaze and burned to ashes! But if they serve as fingerposts, pointing to the Scriptures and saying, “Read this, and this, and this,” then I am thankful to have printed them. But if they keep you from your Bibles, burn them, burn them, and burn them! Do not let them overlay the Scriptures, but lie beneath them, for that is their proper place. Keep you first to God’s revealed word.
