It's Sunday: Put it on the Altar
An altar call is a practice in churches were those who wish to make a new/renew a spiritual commitment to God are invited to come forward. It is named because people gather at the altar located at the front of the church.
In the Old Testament, an altar was where sacrifices were made. So, the name "altar call" refers to a believer "offering" themselves on an altar to God. Source Wikipedia
In my church we believe if you have a problem, burden or concern that is too much for you to bear.... you bring it to God by putting it on the altar, praying... then everything would be alright! Amen!
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
