Scripture: 1 Kings 18:30

And Elijah repaired the altar of the Lord which was in ruins (1 Kings 18:30)

 

Repair  = restore (something damaged, faulty, or worn) to a good condition (Oxford Dictionary)

What will destroy your altar?

  • Sin and worldly pleasures
  • Disobedience and rebellion
  • Idolatry (gods of your own design and imagination)
  • Anger, resentment, hatred, unforgiveness
  • Bearing grudges and being unmerciful
  • Pride, jealousy, envy, greed, ingratitude, etc.

You have abandoned the Lord’s command and followed the Baals (false gods) (1 Kings 18:18)

 

When you neglect the altar of God, you will erect other altars to sacrifice your time, talents and treasures, and your energy, effort and earnings.

False gods cannot hear you, help you or answer your prayers, but the true God can.

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal is God, follow Him.” But the people said nothing. (1 Kings 18:21)

 

Spiritual Disloyalty will lead to Spiritual

  1. Dullness
  2. Drought
  3. Destruction

 

What is the remedy?

What must you do to face 2020 confidently and victoriously?

1. Follow Jesus all the way – Be fully devoted to Him

2. Yield to His Lordship – Be submissive to His Word, Will and Way

3. Repair the altar of the Lord (in your heart) – Be serious in your walk with Him

 

Repair the altar of:

  1. Devotion – He is worthy of your life and all
  2. Intercession – He is all you need
  3. Consecration – He is your first love

 

Do these 4 ‘S’:

  1. Spend time with the Lord and His Word to know Him intimately
  2. Set aside time to pray and worship Him, and do His will and bidding
  3. Stand up for what is right and true. Live with no compromise
  4. Shine for Him wherever you are and in whatever you do

Let Christ rule and reign in your life and you will be a blessing to many.

 

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. (John 15:5-8)

 

Examine your spiritual altar and repair it.

Consecrate yourself on that altar as a living sacrifice for His glory.
