Fathers have an incredibly important role. They represent God to younger generations, they model integrity in relationships, and they provide a foundation for wise decision-making and faith. Sometimes fathers might feel like they’ve got it all together, and sometimes their responsibilities can seem overly burdensome. Fathers need strengthening reminders of their calling every day.
This 365-day devotional gives fresh encouragement to fathers. Time spent each day in God’s presence meditating on his powerful Word can empower them to be men of character, strength, and leadership. After all, God the Father has more than enough resources at his disposal for those who seek to represent him in all they do.
Many long for a closer walk with God, but He seems far away. They go to church. They read the Bible. But they don’t experience His presence. Why? Because many have forsaken the altar—the place where God is found. When we truly encounter Him again, the light and power of God will flow to our homes, then to our houses of worship, then to the nation, and we will never be the same.
In Rebuilding the Altar authors Pat and Karen Schatzline passionately challenge you to return to the altar. You see, the altar is not just a physical location or an instrument in a church or synagogue. Through Christ we can experience a daily encounter with Jesus, who became our altar. We must declare this truth to the deceived. We must raise a standard of holiness and no compromise. We must bring hope to the hurting.
It’s time for change. It’s time to return to the altar...and encounter God.
