The altar is not carved out of a piece of wood or a pile of stones - it is an encounter with the living God and it takes place in our hearts and it changes our lives. #lcmidlo Share this week's tweet to your followers by tapping the link below.

Sermon Notes

Don't allow waiting for tomorrow to steal what God wants to do today!

Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?"
- John 5:1-6

"fan into flame the gift inside of you." - 2 Timothy 1:6

The altar is the place where what you have been, gets interrupted by what you can become!

“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” – John 5:7

Jesus doesn't want our excuses, He wants our hearts.

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. - John 5:8-9
