Lord, I pray that every person in the faith will realize how wonderful it is to be a part of Your royal priesthood. Surely, You are our high priest and being under You gives us so much peace and joy. Because You are the Lamb of God and suffered for our sins on the cross, animal sacrifices are done and away with and we have hope in You. We no longer have to go to an earthly person to do a sacrifice for us, for we can come to You now in prayer. You have opened the doors to us all, since the veil was ripped in half, as You gave up the ghost on the cross. This was when everything was stopped for the earthly high priest and switched over to a spiritual offering instead. Because You were our sacrifice, it is our duties Lord to serve You and to give You everything we have. These spiritual sacrifices I now do is because of my great love for You Lord. I want less of me and more of You in my life. May my old ways never return, that this new life will come to life. You are my King and my Lord. I give You my heart, my mind and my eyes. May my life give You praise in everything I do. So keep me on Your path, oh Lord. Help me to be a light to this darken generation and to resist temptation. I want more people to know You and to understand what You've done for them on the cross. Surely, if I have found mercy in Your sight, anyone can. I say these things Lord, in thy Holy Name, Jesus. Amen.

9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
As believers in Christ, Jesus is our high priest. We are therefore a part of His body in the church and His royal priesthood.
In this new covenant with God, Jesus is the last high priest and earthly high priests no longer exist. Continue Reading
