On Sunday we talked about having an “altar-building” lifestyle. Using the life
of Abraham from Genesis 12, 13 and 22 we talked about how altars are
places where:

  • We bow to the will of God.
  • We can claim the promises of God. Before anything can be conquered it must be claimed!
  • We can gain a brand new start.
  • We can worship and thank God for what He has done and what He will do!
  • We can separate ourselves from the world and other things that seek to compete for our obedience and affection that is meant for God.
  • We can seek guidance to make major decisions.
  • We learn to sacrifice what we love in order to receive something even greater as the altar of sacrifice becomes the altar of provision.
  • Let’s be people of the altar and build altars all throughout the week!

I Peter 2:9-10 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises
Deuteronomy 10:12-17 12 And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him,
Promised Land living was going to be wonderful, but the Israelites were still going to need God in that place.
