Gathering in Christ
Take heed to yourself that you do not offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see, but in the place where the LORD chooses; in one of your tribes, there you shall offer your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you.
All natural religion reaches its climax in ritual, in the beauties of aesthetic and sensuous worship. God’s altar is discerned only by the Holy Spirit when that Spirit is in a man… No one has the right to give up the right to himself or herself to anyone but God Almighty, and devotion to a cause, not matter how noble or how beautiful, nowhere touches the profundity of this lesson. Is there any principle, any cause, any enterprise on the face of the earth of such importance that a man has to give the very highest he has, namely, his right to himself for it? The only being who dare ask of me this supreme sacrifice is the LORD Jesus Christ.
