Priestly Service

What do you consider yourself? Hopefully for most of you it is a Christian, right? Well, today during the morning service my pastor was in Hebrews 13:15. It says that we are called to offer ourselves up as priests of God. Along with offering up ourselves we are also called to offer up our service. The Leviticle priests weren't just priests on a certain day, but every minute of the day!! Hebrews 13:15 (a) reads, "Through Him, then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God." That tells us that we must praise Him in everything, not just the good times or the bad times. There are three elements of priestly service; 1) Continual, meaning we shouldn't just be priests to God for a few minutes a day. 2) Consisting in Praise, meaning that we must praise God with enthusiasm. We should also praise God as much as we pray. 3)Confession, meaning we are called to share our knowledge of God to others. Now of course there are plenty of other priestly elements, but those are just a few.
