Brothers and sisters, today’s topic of Treasures for the Soul is “The Precedents of Priests in the Bible (2).”
Revelation chapter 1 tells us that the Lord loves us and made us priests. In addition to chapter 1, chapters 5 and 20 also talk about our priesthood. Not only are we priests today, we will also be priests in the Millennium and in eternity. We will be kings with the Lord. 1 Peter chapter 2, verse 9 calls us a royal priesthood, similar to the Lord who is a king and a priest at the same time. It’s very precious. We were once sinners far away from God. Now He has greatly elevated us. He made us priests that we may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
