The Priesthood of all believers
1 Timothy 2:1-6
Hebrews 9:11-12, 10:19-25
Because Jesus, our great High Priest, has made a new and living way into the presence of God by his own blood, we have direct access to God and may approach the throne of grace with confidence that we will find grace and mercy in our time of need. Approaching God’s throne with confidence in what Jesus has done also means approaching humbly in repentance and with a contrite heart, for God will dwell with the contrite one.
500 years ago the church experienced what was to be the most significant change in its history. Luther posted his 95 Theses calling God’s people to open His word and discover the light of life, thus ending the dark ages of the church. Today, those statements shape our identity as Christians. We will discover them afresh and anew. They could change your life!
