#53 • Vision Week, December 2016 • Excerpt 6 • “The Real Significance of the Altar”
In this week’s program we are continuing to feature excerpts from the recent Winter Vision Week in Cleveland, Ohio.
What is the real significance of the altar in the Old Testament tent of meeting? Of course, many Christians do realize that it signifies we must offer ourselves to God. As Brother Titus shares, however, that does not mean we offer ourselves on the altar to do something for God; rather, we offer ourselves to be consumed by God. If we fail to see this, we will miss the real meaning of the Christian life and spend our lives engaged in Christian activities in the outer court, rather than going on to contact Christ Himself in the Holy Place within the tabernacle.
