All priests

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:32 pm

Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine;6 and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the people of Israel.”

I’d never paid attention to this verse before.  I had in my mind a picture of the Old Testament having a select few priests with greater access to You than the ordinary people.  The New Testament was the point at which I though the change took place, the curtain was torn in two and we could all have direct contact with You.  Reading this verse, it seems clear that Your intention was always to live with Your people.  Israel were called to be a kingdom of priests – some with different roles to others but all with the offer of a direct relationship with You.  It seems that so many treated this with contempt.  As I often do.  I have this amazing VIP pass to the throne room of Heaven and I waste my time on so much rubbish.

Lord, I want to treat this amazing privilege with the respect it deserves.  Help me to keep You at the front of my mind, to actively pursue a relationship with You.
