I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your spiritual worship. And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Rom 12:1-2) In churches across America and around the world, the altar became a place for decision, encounter, worship, sacrifice, reflection, repentance, change, confession, declaration, accountability, celebration, revelation, empowerment and passion. The altar (and in false religions, to numerous to name them all) always represents worship; in Christianity it is the Cross (sacrifice) of Jesus Christ. This is a representation that runs all through the Old Testament, and finds its fulfillment in the NT. The altar is the place of surrender, dedication, and worship. Worship is supposed to be a celebration of being in covenant fellowship with the living God. It is a time set aside for the members of the covenant, the believers, to demonstrate their faith with genuine praise and thanksgiving.
