Kingdom of priests

Exodus 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

What a time in history! Israel was to be a kingdom of priests, people who could talk to God. Yet at the same time they were to stay away while God talked to Moses. They were to not even get close to the mountain. They were to not touch it.

Moses had a more special relationship with God than any of them.

Today, we live in a different time. We are also called to be a kingdom of priests in the New Testament church. But, we have it so much better. Not only are we to talk to God about people but we get to talk directly.

There is no mountain we can’t touch, no borders we are not to cross. He lives in us! We are His and He is ours. He lives in us! We are His temple.

I hope you think about the richness of this relationship! What a privilege!
