Bad Priest

Just read Malachi 2:7 – 9, if you read it, you may have the same reaction that I had.  I thought, “My what a strong rebuke of the priests, I sure would not want to be one of them…”

Oops.
Before we go and criticize priests we should probably realize that we are...
I also read 1 Peter 2:5; 2:9; Revelation 1:6; 20:6.  It occurred to me that the priesthood has changed from Levi to the saints.  Us.  Which means that passage now applies to me – I hate it when that happens.  Which means that I am supposed to:
  • Preserve knowledge
  • Be able to instruct
  • I am a messenger of the Lord of hosts
  • I should not turn away
  • I should not corrupt the message
  • I should keep His ways
  • I should not show partiality
Bottom line I am to live in such a way that people are attracted to the Lord through my life and I should be able to instruct them in how they can enter into the same relationship I have with Christ.

If you are a believer – tag you’re it.
