This post is the third in a 3 part series on how to raise a personal altar.

There are different teachings on personal altars. Some Christians teach that you select a certain space in your house where you spend time in personal fellowship with God and call it an altar.

While I love the concept of having spaces where you can commune with God in quietness, you are the altar, not those spaces.

I would call such a place in your home your personal sanctuary.

“As you come to him, the living Stone–rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him–

You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”
~1 Peter 2:5

In Christ, you are a living altar. And you offer sacrifices to God through your obedience to instructions His Spirit gives to you. 

Still others teach that to have a personal altar, you need to erect a structure in a certain area of your house.

This is no longer necessary in the new and living way that Jesus has opened for you under the new covenant. (Hebrews 10:20)

You are the altar; not a designated space or erected structure.
