God’s True Altar Today

The altar call, as we know it, has its roots in the person and ministry of Charles Finney (1792-1875). Finney’s meetings involved huge crowds and multiple conversions, and altar calls were used as a means to lead people to Christ …

What was an altar used for in the Old Testament? It was used to offer up a sacrifice to God. The higher spiritual truth for us today … is to be found in Romans 12:1. It states, “… present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service …” We must understand that we are to become an altar unto God, and that our life must become a sacrifice unto Him. It is not a matter of going to an altar as much as it is becoming an altar!

We must stop trying to force and manipulate people to come to a man-made altar, convincing them that walking an aisle is what saves them. Rather, we must help them to comprehend that God has already reconciled them to Himself through the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. As they are awakened to this truth they will want to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. When this takes place we become an altar, and our lives become a living sacrifice unto God.

Present yourself as a living sacrifice unto God!
