Life Laid on the Altar
The altar of God is a place of sacrifice, consecration and commitment. It is a place where all is laid down without reservation. It is a place where we keep divine appointments with God. It is a place where one encounters God and becomes humble. Sometimes like Jacob, you stumble into it unknowingly. No wonder Jacob exclaimed, “… surely the Lord is in this place, and I knew it not” (Gen. 28:16).
