Priesthood of All Believers

A priest is one who brings God and people together.  In Hebrews 13, Jesus is called “our high priest.”  Christ is the one who by his death and resurrection brings God and people together.  But each one of us in our own way is a priest.  Each one of us has a “calling” from God. 

That calling can take many different forms:  Doctors and nurses are in a healing ministry, lawyers and judges are in a justice ministry, stay at home parents are in a family ministry, an architect and builders are in a housing ministry, etc.  No matter what our calling is, we represent God.  The way we greet the stranger, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, carry out our callings is a reflection of God in our lives.  Through our callings we serve both God and people.
