This Series is based upon a three (3) letter word – that word is “all”. A Dear Friend and Sister in Christ posed this question upon a Social Media site in the following manner:
“What does the word “all” mean? To a politician it means one thing, to a child it may mean something else. So often, to a Christian, it means all ………………… except __________?”
Immediately a response was sparked in my heart, which was shown in a reply having the name of this Series in it:
That is ONE tall THREE letter WORD! Realizing that is humbling and should cause us to renew our Altar of Sacrifice.
The answer to what “all” could include was supplied at the end of her sharing of a Hymn which she posts every morning of the year, which said:
“This year my “all” must mean, heart, soul, desires, will, words, actions. Any less is NOT all.”
Other words, which are actions really, that can be included, would be:
thoughts, goings, abstaining, intake, consumptions, involvement…
Those additional items are just a beginning place in describing my “all” which needs to be place upon the Altar.
While we today do not have a “proverbial” altar that we lay down a “sacrifice”, we do have the One who IS the Altar, IS the Sacrifice and IS the Saviour! The verses of Scripture shared in this Series are ALL about what that Sacrifice has done for YOU and for ME as Christians. There are twenty-three (23) areas covered in the Series images, from “the things” which we have done to “how quickly” He will return to call up His Bride – the Church – You and Me as Believers.
The challenges presented in this Series are only provided for by the Son of God, whom we must go to, in order to receive the Eternal benefit. Before the very foundations of the world, there was a manner and way provided such that we might have Fellowship and be able to Commune with our Heavenly Father. He satisfies all the requirements for those that came before us, our generations and those who will follow, until His Return.
The Lord provided His All, His LIFE, so that we would have the opportunity to gain Eternal Life – FOREVER – by being our Altar, the very Sacrifice which covers it all and by being the ONLY One Worthy to be the Saviour of the World. The VERY least we should do as Believers is to go to the Altar, giving Thanks, pleading for Forgiveness, seeking Power and dedicating our Entire Lives to Him. By doing so, other areas will become known, greater levels of commitment will be made and we will find ourselves more like Him than even before.
The following Theme and Series listing of key words & phrases total twenty-six (26) items that every Christian should take the time to review, inspect and determine to apply to our lives. Each of these provide a glimpse of how Good God the Father has been to us and show us just how much Jesus cared for each of our very souls, as He was willing to die to provide the opportunity for us to gain an Eternal Life with Him Forever one day.

Series One | Things, Fulfilled, Believe, Peace, Confidence, Reconciliation, Blessed, Fulness, Glory, Giving, Understanding & Through
Series Two | According, Richly, Everlasting, Endure, Delivered, Glorified, Eternal, Charity, Fellowship, Record & Quickly
What does “all” really mean to you? For that matter, what does “all” mean to me? Is there that one “little” thing that is excluded or hidden away that hasn’t been given over to our Heavenly Father? Have we given in to serving with limited Power from on High because we will not submit fully to Him? Will we determine RIGHT NOW that everything is “on the table” so to speak and that we will stop “holding back” from Him what He knows already we have up to this point refused to let Him handle? We DO NOT have to continue wondering, thinking, living with or in limited Power, Grace or Forgiveness – our Heavenly Father can handle ALL that we will bring to Him. We must humble ourselves before Him and renew ourselves before our Altar of Sacrifice.
