Episode Notes:

The Old Testament priesthood was a big deal.

  • It was accessed by birth (Exo. 28:1, 43).
  • A priest served God in a designated place (Exo. 28:43; Heb. 9:6).
  • A priest was under the high priest.

It was a big deal because …

  • It was service to God (Exo. 28:3, 4, 41, 43; 29:1).
  • It was a dignified position.

CHRISTIANS ARE NEW TESTAMENT PRIESTS (1 Pet. 2:5, 9; Rev. 1:6)

Our position as priests is a big deal.

  • We have been made priests by the new birth (Heb. 10:22; cf. John 3)
  • We serve God in His temple, our bodies (1 Cor. 3:16).
  • We serve under Jesus Christ, our High Priest (Heb. 5:9-10; 6:20; 7:11, 15, 17).

Like Old Testament priests, we are involved in offering sacrifices.

  • We are living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1-2).
  • We employ our resources as sacrifices, too (Heb. 13:15-16).
