In today’s lesson in A Woman’s Heart:  God’s Dwelling Place by Beth Moore, we took a closer look at the altar of sacrifice.  In ancient times, when a person entered the tabernacle court, the first thing they saw was the altar of sacrifice.  The altar was a place where God dwelt with the children of Israel.

It shall be a continual burnt offering throughout your generations at the doorway of the tent of meeting before the Lord, where I will meet with you, to speak to you there. I will meet there with the sons of Israel, and it shall be consecrated by My glory. I will consecrate the tent of meeting and the altar; I will also consecrate Aaron and his sons to minister as priests to Me. I will dwell among the sons of Israel and will be their God. They shall know that I am the Lord their God who brought them out of the land of Egypt, that I might dwell among them; I am the Lord their God. – Exodus 29:42-46

In this study, Beth wanted us to realize 4 points about the altar of sacrifice.
  1. The altar of sacrifice was a place of awe.
  2. The altar was a place of relief.
  3. The altar was a place of refuge
  4. The altar was a place of joy.
This has been one of the most in-depth studies I’ve ever done on an Old Testament topic.  I’ve never studied the tabernacle more closely.  Beth Moore is a talented Bible teacher.  If you would like to go through the entire study, A Woman’s Heart:  God’s Dwelling Place, you can get your own copy here.

Beth has also authored many more devotionals and Bible Studies.  I look forward to going through another one as soon as we finish this one.
