The Alter Of Infinity

27 Dec

The Alter Of Infinity…

The Tabernacle, the Temple of Jerusalem, and the path into the Holy Place all existed on an east-west plane. This is something very profound. For unlike north and south, east and west have no beginning or end. The east-west plane is infinite.

Located along this east-west plane was the Temple’s altar of sacrifice. Thus the altar of sacrifice existed on the plane of infinity. The altar was a foreshadow of the cross and the final sacrifice of Jesus.

What is it telling us? The death of Jesus is ultimately an infinite thing. For the infinite judgment of sin can only be overcome by the infinite goodness, and the infinite love of God – only His infinite life poured out in our place can bring us salvation.

The cross, the sacrifice, and the love of God – for you – are all infinite. So you can never exhaust them by your sins, or use them up. Nor can you ever know all there is to them, or have reason to stop receiving them. Nor can you ever thank God, praise God, or bless God enough in your life for the blessing you’ve been given.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

Let your heart be like a cup that receives the flowing of God’s love like a river – receive that flow and overflow with it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
