Listen...to the words of the Scripture, and in them discover God's message for you today.
Look...at a brief verbal snapshot from the scrapbook of contemporary life and discover its connection both to you and to the Scripture passage.
Live...inside the Scripture to discover its context and message; then allow the Scripture to come alive in you and cause you to live out your faith in new and more-effective ways.
Read an excerpt from this study below.
“We are climbing Jacob’s ladder.” This wonderful spiritual invites us to imagine the sure and steady steps to God, up the ladder that leads to heaven. This image gave hope to slaves in America as they dreamed of the day when they would be free to leave their chains behind and climb the ladder to a new existence. Our Bible Lesson invites us to look closely at the event that inspired the writer of this song. When we do, the ladder becomes less significant. The story is not about climbing a ladder to heaven. It is about fleeing the consequences of bad behavior, traveling to a different land, hearing God’s promises that will not let us go, and being given the opportunity to respond to those promises. Climbing Jacob’s ladder? Nope. This is not a story of us seeking God but of God seeking us.
