Saturday November 26, 2016 “An Altar Then and Now”

Genesis 12:7 Then the Lord appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” And there he built an altar to the Lord, who had appeared to him.
Abraham was given a promise to those who would come after him. The land would be their inheritance.  Abraham built an altar.
   In the same way those who came to America gave thanks to God for “the new land” (America) by worshiping the Lord.
  Let us pray today that in the new leadership of America and all Americans there be a desire to worship at the altar our forefathers set up as they made America their land and home through blood, sweat and tears.  This land is our inheritance and as such we must possess it, cherish it and enrich it through good stewardship of our moral and ethical code and faithfulness to God who gave the land to us as Americans.
