A Fresh Look at Basics-Believers’ Priesthood

An often overlooked teaching in Scripture is the priesthood of each believer. This doctrine highlights one of the Christian’s greatest blessings. We are privileged to boldly (albeit respectfully) enter right into God’s Throne Room. We have the wonder of His Presence and attention. Imagine God paying attention to us! We enjoy an unlimited audience with The Creator of all, the King of kings! We approach Him with worship, praise and thanksgiving. He is our (not just mine, or just your, but our) Father. Rejoicing in His love, we are urged to cast "all of our care upon Him; for He careth for you." I Peter 5:7   In the words of that wonderful gospel song, "Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there!" We commune! We are loved and, "We love Him because He first loved us." I John 4:19. No elaborate preparation is needed. We do need to quiet ourselves to listen. We need to focus, (to shut out distractions). The Old Testament high priest went only once a year, in fear and trembling, into the Holy Presence! We need the same reverence but we enter His Presence with confidence. His sons and daughters are always welcome and when all of our accounts are up-to-date with Him, we have His ear. This is a blood-bought blessing. Avail yourself of it, often. He is awaiting you!   Selah! Think about and accept this invitation: "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light."… Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30    Ron
