Altar of the Lord

Introduction: That tiny heap of broken stones is the root of all the

our churches, and our government.

Conclusion: Those few stones lying there in unregarded confusion are a
symbol of a forgotten God. They seem un-important. They remind us of a
time long ago when we were closes to God that ever before. The Lord
wants that again. Won’t you come back to Him this morning.
Illustration: A Pastor was talking to Lady in his church She said,
"Pastor, I've lost my joy, I've lost my peace, and I want it back."
"Where did you lose it?" He asked.
"That has nothing to do with this," she replied. "Help me to get it
"But where did you lose it?"
"I don't want to talk about that."
But eventually she did talk about it. She lost it when she moved in
with her boyfriend. That'll do it.
