But ye are a chosen generation, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light [1 Peter 2:9-10]
The Royal Priesthood
How completely sublime!
The idea is Divine…its manifestation even more so!
What a wonder!
We are His royal priesthood!
It is a present tense reality.
Our ancestry is of the divine royal line.
We call God – the creator and possessor of the Heavens and Earth- Father!
We call the Lord Jesus Christ liege Lord and King.
We are priests with Him…kings under him…we are the royal priesthood!
It has become incumbent on us to walk befitting of our station.
It is presently most vital that we give ourselves to the rigorous training the Word of His Grace immerses us into…it is most important that we yield supremely to the tutelage of the Holy Spirit.
We are His royal priesthood.
The times demand we fully adorn the robes of our calling and function consistent with the responsibilities and rights of our high call.
Let the children of God say Amen!
