Nor was there anyone among them who lacked; for all who were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of the things that were sold, and laid them at the apostles’ feet; and they distributed to each as anyone had need. And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus, having land, sold it, and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet. Acts 4.34-37
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. Acts 5.1-2
“At the apostles’ feet,” the entire church proved who was the most important person in their life.
For those who made the Lord Jesus number 1, there was no lack.
While Barnabas was extremely used by the Holy Spirit to bring Salvation, Ananias and Sapphira died without it.
The feet were the same, but the priorities were different.
Our life is a consequence of our priorities. And there are many who say the Lord Jesus is first in their life, but they end up demonstrating that this is a lie, because of the life that is presented on the Altar.
If something has been reserved, preserved, untouched, then He is not first.
It has to be our everything for Him, who is everything for us.
As “the apostles’ feet” were available to everyone, the ALTAR has also been.
The ALTAR has always been and will be the same, but the priorities are different.
