THREE RESPONSIBILITIES OF PRIESTS

THREE RESPONSIBILITIES OF PRIESTS – Pastor Chris

And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen (Revelation 1:6).

As God’s people in the earth, we’re king-priests; that is, royal priests. 1 Peter 2:9 says, “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people….” What are the responsibilities of a priest? The responsibilities of a priest are in three folds.

First, a priest offers gifts to God. When people bring material gifts to the house of God, the priest is empowered by God to convert these from material substance to spiritual substance, useful to God. Without the office of a priest, material things presented to God remain mundane and thus of no spiritual value.

Secondly, the priest is called to intercede for men; he stands between God and men. It is his office to do so, and when he does that, God is also obligated to hear the priest’s voice and respond accordingly.

Thirdly, the priest is called to teach the Word and reveal the principles and way of life of the Kingdom of God to men. He’s called to teach the people how to live for God and towards God. These are the three assignments given to the priest. So, as God’s priests, we offer gifts, we intercede in prayer, and we teach the knowledge of God. Hallelujah!

PRAYER / CONFESSION

Dear Father, thank you for the awesome responsibilities you’ve given me as a king-priest. It’s my joy to bring your will to pass in the earth, leading many into the Kingdom and teaching them the way of the Kingdom. Thank you for the dominion and the authority to alter the course of events in the earth through intercessory prayer, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
