So weve looked at Adam and Eve as priests, weve looked at the Old Testament Temple priests but can you think of someone who totally fulfilled this priesthood idea, and then some?
Jesus. Ultimate Prophet He revealed God to humanity. Ultimate King, He is chiefrulerandboss over all Creation. Ultimate Priest in His life and even more so in His death and resurrection, Jesus enabled mankind to go back into God, and God into mankind.
People could do with knowing about Jesus. And you are saved to be like Jesus. Wherever you are, the people around you could do with seeing God shine through you, and hearing the news that Jesus died because He loved them so much.
How can you be this priest? Get close to God, choose to bring Him into Creation around you, and bring Creation to Him, constantly, in prayer. And bring Him into your conversations bring that Good News into a world that needs it. You are a priest. And the more you go to Him for guidance on how to live that out, day to day, the more Hell build you up in it, instructing and teaching you to do it better and better.
So what now? Write P R I E S T down a page. Spend ten minutes researching the word priest (in dictionaries, Bible concordances, whatever). From that research, note down a singleword challenge for yourself, beginning with each letter, then live it out today.
