The Lake Highlands Church is an interdenominational family
of imperfect believers, trusting only Christ as Savior and Lord.
Rooted in the ancient, authoritative scriptures, we are saved
by God’s surprising grace, alive in the power of the Spirit
and expectant of a coming Christ.
The Story – Melchizey… Who?
Are we relating to our high priest the way Abram did? Are we feasting on his presence? Are we seeing life from His perspective? Are we receiving His blessing? Are we giving to Him out of the abundance that God has given us? We need to recognize the glory of having a Melchizedekian priest.
Scripture reading: Genesis 14:17-20; Psalm 110:1-4; Hebrews 7
The Story – This Will Be On The Test
Is our growth academic or is it real? The problem that most of us face is that our growth is academic. We read our Bible, we go to church, we go to Bible studies; we’ve got it all up here, but we are unwilling to do what it takes to get it into our lives. If we want to see real growth in our lives, it’s going to happen through being tested.
Scripture reading: Genesis 14
The Story – Learning from Lot
Lot had no personal relationship with God; he focused on the material things that the world could give him right now; he was led by his passions. But Abraham knew God, and he focused on what God would give him later and eternally; Abe was led by those promises. Are we more like Lot or Abe?
Scripture reading: Genesis 13:5-18
The Story – Even Patriarchs Have Bad Days
No failure is permanent. We can go back to the cross of Jesus Christ and receive the grace and mercy of God offered through him. And, by God’s grace, when we find ourselves in a situation where we are tempted again, if we hold on to God and His promises we can overcome. In times of testing, the question to ask is not, “How can I get out of this?” but rather “What can I get out of this?” God is at work building your faith.
Scripture reading: Genesis 12:10-13:4
The Story - Set Apart to Be a Blessing
