Listen to For the City, Part 2: An Effective Priesthood
God has called all believers to be priests representing Him to the outside world. We can only do this effectively as we saturate ourselves with the gospel message while living from this humble state.
As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious,
you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to
offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession,
that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous
light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received
mercy, but now you have received mercy.”
1 Peter 2:4-5, 9-10 ESV
