TOPIC OF THE WEEK:
“BUILD AN ALTAR”
EXODUS 20:22-24 22 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Tell the Israelites this: ‘You have seen for yourselves that I have spoken to you from heaven: 23 Do not make any gods to be alongside me; do not make for yourselves gods of silver or gods of gold. 24 “‘Make an altar of earth for me and sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, your sheep and goats and your cattle. Wherever I cause my name to be honored, I will come to you and bless you.
Introduction:There are two ways to be in relationship with God: one right and one wrong. The wrong one is idolatry. The correct form is the altar. Every time God's people won a battle, they honored God by building an altar with stones, one on top of another, to his name. Altars are a symbol of what God expects of us.
The correct communion with God is linked to having an altar in our life. Let's see the symbols that should be on an altar: The stones represent our heart, if they are scattered, the altar is not completely dedicated to the Lord. We need all the stones together (thoughts, emotions, will) so that they form a single altar, strong, firm and consecrated to God. Then we must place the firewood that is our motivations and our passion, and that must be replaced constantly so that the fire does not go out. On the firewood goes the sacrifice. The altar of our life is constituted to receive the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. What we place on the altar is what we will honor and submit to. If Jesus is in him, we submit to him and we will honor him. Only then will the fire of God fall and activate the sacrifice in us, and the blessing, peace, healing, salvation and miracles will be poured out around us. Let's do this task of Invasion consecrating ourselves to Jesus at every step, thus turning our life into a true altar.
Prayer:Lord, I ask you to teach us as a family to be a true altar, that we can burn with fire just for you, and that your presence and your fire come upon us. We ask this in Jesus name, amen.
Holy Spirit, teach us to be passionate about your presence and give us wisdom to take care of that presence in us. Amen.
