Word for Today: A king and a priest in Christ Jesus.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“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” ( 1Peter 2:9).
Many people claim to be ‘born again’ Christians but they lack understanding of their new nature and position in Christ Jesus. If you are truly born again, then you are a king and a priest. This why Jesus Christ is our King of kings and our high Priest. How many born again Christians are functioning as kings and as priests, in accordance with our memory verse?
Apostle Paul described a born again Christian as a new creature :
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”
The word of God enables us to know that man is only complete when the Spirit of Jesus dwells in him. Someone has said life without Christ is crisis. Without Jesus Christ, despite apparent achievements in life, there will be lack joy contentment , inner feelings of frustrations, emptiness and feelings of incompleteness. Indeed, there is a vacuum in the life of every man without the Spirit of Jesus Christ in him or her.
“And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power” ( Colossians 2:10).
In Christ Jesus, be conscious of your kingship and priesthood. Make every effort to function as a king and priest as the Psalmist did.
Stay CONNECTED to Jesus Christ , the Word. Seek knowledge, wisdom and understanding . Be enlightened.
Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit.
Be compassionate and kind to one another.
Dear Father, we pray for everyone sincerely connected to your Word, that they will experience completeness and begin to function as a king and priest in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Blood of Jesus!
Thank you Father, for making me a king and a priest in Christ Jesus.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
