The Alter is a place to bring all the junk of life and lay it down.
The question for us all is when is the last time we were at the altar? When is the last time you poured out your heart full of concerns, the things we love, want, what hurts and things we wish we can go back and change?
We all have stuff in our life we are ashamed of and even scared to share with others.
God is waiting and willing to listen to our concerns, faults, failures, and even out victories. God is always waiting for us to enter into His presence and bring our sacrifices to the Alter.
The Alter is also a place for forgiveness and change. Most may not realize the Alter is also the starting place for revival in our lives. The dreams we once held dear, the pains of failures, the power to forgive others and to even forgive ourselves start at the Alter. We deal with the mess in our lives and we learn who God truly is at the Alter.
