Episode 114: 2 Kings 13 God Shows Kindness to Jehoahaz, Jehoash, and Jeroboam

In this episode, Finn and I talk about God’s kindness in rescuing the Israelite kings and how in Christ, we are saved for so much more! 

With your kids: What’s scary about dying? Is there anything you are looking forward to? 

Episode 113: 2 Kings 12 Joash Repairs the Temple But Then Forgets God

In this episode, Finn and I talk about Joash making a good choice to repair the temple, but then turning away from the God who had saved him. Through Jesus, our bodies can now be temples where God’s Spirit lives!

With your kids: Talk about where God has put you right now. What is He calling you to do and how is He calling you to act toward the people around you? 

Episode 112: 2 Kings 11 God Defeats an Evil Grandma and Saves a Boy King

In this episode, God’s promise is threatened when an evil queen tries to keep one of David’s descendants off the throne so she can rule instead. But God kept His promise, and we get to worship the Rescuing King that the Israelites could only dream about. 

With your kids: What do you think it means to be God’s child? Share what you enjoy about being God’s son or daughter. 

Episode 111: God Rescues a Mountain Climber (A Modern Day Miracle)

In this episode, Brian Dickinson shares about how God rescued him on the top of Mt. Everest, and Finn and I discuss the mountain where we will finally get to meet Jesus! 

With your kids: What do you think heaven will be like? Look up some passages about heaven and take some time to imagine what it will be like to finally see Jesus face-to-face.

P.S.  Check out Brian’s website http://briandickinson.net, which has links to his book Blind Descent, his YouVersion devotional and other media. 

Episode 110: 2 Kings 9-10 God Brings Judgment Through Jehu

In this episode, God keeps His promise to destroy Ahab’s family, but because of Jesus, we can be saved from punishment and serve Him as the true and perfect King. 

With your kids: Who makes you feel angry sometimes? Tell God about it and ask for Him to love that person through you. 

Episode 109: 2 Kings 8 God Acts Through Elisha

In this episode, God moves a king’s heart to provide for a woman and uses Elisha to carry His plan forward. Because of Jesus, we can trust God’s plans in our lives no matter what happens. 

With your kids: Pray together for someone who needs God to provide for them. Thank Him for being so strong and powerful. 

Full of Eyes Youtube Videos

You can certainly check out the channel, but here are some of my favorites:

These are Written

Everlasting Arms

True Food

Chris Powers’ hope is to “fill this channel with videos that exalt Jesus Christ as the Joy, King, and Savior of the world. He is the One in whom we see and know God, and so I want all eyes fixed on Him. I’d love it if the Lord would use these videos to point you to Christ, and to empower you to point others to Him as well.”

These are beautifully illustrated animations that have helped me to remember my lostness without Christ, and many aspects of the gospel. 

P.S. And I couldn’t help but share this video again.

He Is (Names of God)

This 10 minute video brought tears to my eyes as the names of God through the entire Bible are proclaimed.

Episode 108: 2 Kings 6-7 God Rescues the Starving Israelites and Brings Food

In this episode, Finn and I see how God provided miraculously for the Israelites but that one man didn’t believe it could happen. We have the special task of telling others who don’t believe about God’s miraculous provision through Christ.

With your kids: Pray together for someone you know who doesn’t believe God is really the answer to their biggest problem. Pray that you would have a chance to share the gospel with them.

Episode 107: 2 Kings 6 Elisha is Protected by an Angel Army

In this episode, Finn and I talk about what it means to see with spiritual eyes and all the spiritual blessings we have because of Jesus.

With your kids: Share something that’s made you feel sad lately. Talk about how you could use your spiritual eyes to see it and pray together.
