“The Purpose of Daily Devotions.” Throughout the Bible, we find God’s people meeting with God at an altar. It was a place of sacrifice, prayer, consecration, and thanksgiving. Hebrews 13:10 reminds us that “we have an altar,” speaking of the Throne of mercy, where our Saviour sits as our Great High Priest. The church has “altars” and it is good for church people to respond to God after hearing the Word preached. Our families ought to have a “family altar.” But it is absolutely essential that every Christian have a personal altar – a dedicated time of fellowship with God.
God wants to spend time with you! When God created Adam and Eve, they met together in the cool of the evening for fellowship. They had time for work and for their marriage and for recreation – but God wanted some time each day just for Himself.
He wants the same from us. God created us for fellowship. And we need it! There is nothing we do on a daily basis more important to our spiritual growth and well-being than having that daily time in the Bible and in prayer!
