Kings And Priests (Pastor Larry Phalen)
Romans 5:17 – For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. NKJV
Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Every believer has a role in the Kingdom of God and the local church. As priests the ministers in the church are to provide vision for the people for what the Lord desires to accomplish in any particular area. In turn their are those who are kings who are to provide pro-vision for the vision. Ministers of the Gospel provide for the people spiritually and the body of Christ provides materially for the ministers. This is the way God has set up the church, every part supplying to the other.
- Priests bless the kings through words.
- Priests provide vision for the kings to invest in.
- As a king we are not the king over the priest but rather a king to the priest.
