We forget so easily that in the spiritual life there must be the darkness of the night before there can be the radiance of the dawn. Before the life of resurrection can be known, there must be the death that ends the dominion of self. It is a serious but a blessed decision, this willingness to say, "I will follow Him no matter what the cost. I will take the cross no matter how it comes!" (I Talk Back to the Devil...A. W. Tozer)

Amen Pastor!

Today at church, my sunday school teacher was saying how the altar is where a sacrifice is made. Just as when Abraham was bring the sacrifice of his son Isaac, we come to the altar to sacrifice an offering.

It's a place of death. Where we are to die to ourself.

Thank you for the post!
