The Revived Altar by Elizabeth Feranmi Ayoola

 
The Revived Altar by Elizabeth Feranmi Ayoola

Like every other convert, I had my altar of worldliness pulled down at salvation.
Salvation instilled in me a zeal which became a force,
driving me to willingly to go any length to keep the fire on the new altar erected burning.
In no time, I became a slave to fast, as I gave myself to the ministry of the word and prayer.
Gathering of believers?
 I never joked with it, just so I could keep the fire burning.
Before, I knew it, the altar was blazing with fire_ real fire.
Finally, I got what I so much desire.
I kept my arms crossed all because I thought that was all.
Unknown to me that guilt, and shame that I hid beneath my garment
have gradually being putting out the fire.
When I finally became aware, the fire has been put out, completely.
Then, I recalled moments when I was struggling to do the spiritual exercises I once do with ease.
Likewise, the call I have been ignoring all these while_
call for submission to the Holy Spirit was brought to my remembrance.
That instance, it became dawn on me that sustenance on the altar
can only be possible in submission to the Spirit.
Truly, by strength shall no man prevail.
Without hesitation, I answered the call.
It was not an easy thing to do, nevertheless, it is inevitable.
I was exposed to the purifying fire, where I began to die to self.
I saw the garment of guilt, and shame being burnt.
While I was clothed with holiness.
The more I was exposed; the better I become.
In a twinkle of an eye, I saw fire again on my altar.
This time, I was not excited_ I have learnt my lessons.
Instead, I tarried in His presence.
As I continued in His presence, it began to burn.
Until it was twice as fierce as it was in the beginning.
At last, the altar was revived.
