In Webster’s Dictionary, the altar is defined as: "a place where sacrifices or offerings are made." The Word of God describes an altar as a place to meet God with all of our heart, mind and soul. The altar of our heart can repent, and cry out just like Moses did in 1st Kings 13:2: "And he cried against the altar in the word of the Lord." We can also rejoice and give praise at the altar as he changes our lives to be more like Him. When I first came to the Lord, I was given a physical and spiritual experience during prayer.
As I was praying on the altar and communicating my needs to the Lord, my hands and my entire body began to physically raise up from the pew where I was kneeling. I tried to resist
what was happening but the Lord continued to pull me into an upright position. I began praising His name. Never resist the touch of the Lord. I can now say, "Have thine own way, Lord!
And while I am waiting, search me and find me at the altar today."
"Behold, now is the day of salvation"2Cor 6:2.
