Living Like You Mean It

By in Highlands Blog on

New Year’s Resolutions It’s the time of year for resolutions, maybe a little past. If you’re late in making your resolutions that just gives you an easy place to start your list. List item number one: stop procrastinating. You know you have them, whether you care to voice them to the world or not, and your list is probably not all that different from the lady in front of you at Starbucks. “Triple, Grande, Caramel Macchiato please, no whip.” “Certainly, Ma’am, will that be all?” “A body that’s 20 pounds slimmer, a home makeover, and someone to keep me from. . .

Don’t Waste Your Inheritance

By in Highlands Fellow on

Wasted inheritance (crumpled money)

We Have Received an Inheritance The Lord explains to us in the first chapter of Job that we have come into this world naked, and that we shall leave this world in the same condition. As much as this is true, it is not an empty world into which we have come! The Lord Himself has prepared an earthly place for us. Of course He is the creator, so all things we see come from His hand. But another thing we must recognize is that much of what we receive comes to us, molded and developed, passing through the hands. . .

The Kingdom of God & Brownies

The Kingdom of God & Brownies

Kingdom of God Takes Hold It all starts with worship — potent worship. Like a kung-fu ballet or fudge brownies with just enough brownie mix to hold all those pecans together. Let’s face it, if you don’t have something that is worthy of passion then you ain’t got much at all. But once it takes hold, you see life radically differently. There is eternity in every moment. Those words spoken, that opportunity that presents itself, that child, that job, that illness; they all become what they were not before, because you were not who you were before. The world has. . .

Building the Kingdom of God is a Family Mission

By in Highlands Fellow on

Build the Kingdom of God in Your Family During times of war a wise commander deploys his soldiers according to a strategic plan. Missions are carefully planned and then manned with well-equipped warriors so that objectives are achieved, positions are held, and enemy territory is taken. And so it is with the Lord of Hosts, the One who commands the armies of Heaven. Our God has an eternal plan for dominion, one that is moving forward one heart, one household, one community at a time. The reality of the Kingdom of God and our part in it is something that. . .

Your Family is a Target-Rich Environment for Kingdom Building

By in Highlands Fellow on

This World is a Battlefield We who are the seed of the woman are to oppose the seed of the serpent. The orders for this battle were written very early on: “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed” (Gen 3:15a). And there is seemingly no end to the areas of life in which we see possible conflicts and battlefields on which to fight them. Even within the evangelical, Bible believing, starched shirt-wearing church of the happy, clean, and polite, there is work to be done. We have chronicled many of. . .

New Basement Tape Release #144

By in Highlands Blog on

Basement Tape #144: Z is for Omega (the end)

This new Basement Tape conversation is the final in our Alphabet series on theology. Z is for Omega (The End). This conversation between Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Rev. Laurence Windham and their friends considers the end, heaven, and eternity. What does the end of this world look like? Where is life going? To understand the end of the journey we must go back to the beginning. As we get a better grip on our Genesis we will better understand our end in glory, the Revelation of His glory. There is continuity from our beginning to our end, and what we. . .

Castles in the Sand

Castles in the Sand

What Are We Arguing About? There are, when we disagree, almost always two disagreements. Most of the time the smaller disagreement is the bigger one. Consider election. There are some in the church who believe that God chooses who will believe His gospel. There are others who believe God sees beforehand who will believe. This, on the surface, seems to be the root of the loss of peace between these two groups. The second disagreement, however, is over this question: just how important an issue is this? Though there are surely exceptions, by and large those who don’t believe in election. . .

Couples Camp dates set for June 20-23, 2013 in Bristol, Virginia

By in Highlands Blog on

We are inviting ten couples to come for three days of intense conversation, as well as a great deal of fun. The camp is held at the home of Highlands Ministries President, Eric Owens, in Bristol, Virginia. Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr. will be your teacher. We will not only talk about how to be a kingdom-building, King-serving family, but we will talk about it in the context of such families. We will follow three distinct but related areas of inquiry: the biblical view of the family, the sovereignty of God, and the unstoppable spread of the Kingdom of God.
