BFB220515 Renee and Sam

If marriage is a picture of our collective relationship with our Messiah, then we might want to pay more attention to how that relationship is portrayed in every wedding story we hear.

A Kingdom of Priests

Our contemporary concept of priesthood probably hasn’t changed much since the dawn of civilization. It seems that we humans are quite happy to outsource our interaction wit the Creator to those who seem more inclined to stand before Him on our behalf. That is, at best, a temporary solution seeing that our Creator has always desired to connect with each of us directly. With that in mind, maybe we should give some thought to what He means when He says He has called us into His Kingdom of Priests.

Leviticus 6:8-8:36, 10:8-10; Psalm 110:4; Jeremiah 7:21-8:3, 9:23-24; Ezekiel 22:25-27, 44:23; Hebrews 6:13-7:28; 1 Peter 2:1-11
