Reflection: You are called to a position of incredible significance. As a consequence of Jesus dying to pay the price for your sins, you have been called to be a royal priest of God.
A priest has two functions. First: a priest represents God to people. Second: a priest represents people to God. In other words, they pray for, and plead for, people in need. By doing so, they inject God’s involvement into situations where people and society are in dire straits.
Here is the important bit: Every follower of Jesus is a priest. There are no exceptions. Being a priest is not the sole preserve of a privileged few. It is your privilege.
Do represent Christ faithfully and well.
Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, Words can’t describe the privilege you have given me in allowing me to represent your truth and grace to the world. May I carry your reputation with care so that you are honoured. That is all I ask.
