We ought to be able to learn something about worship from this book of beginnings. A recurring phrase in the book is “built an altar.” We will look at each of these texts as we examine how worship changes us or how we are “Altered by the Altar.” Over the rest of the weeks of the summer we will look at each of the texts that have this phrase. Last week, we considered Noah. We learned from Noah’s building of an altar that “worship is the right response” to salvation. There is no other response, really, when you think about what God has done for us in saving us through Jesus Christ.
