1 Peter 2:9 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.  (NIV)

Did you know, if you are a believer in God through His Son, Jesus Christ, you are a priest?  It says so in the above verse.  There is no hierarchy in the family of God other than the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  All believers are equal.  The human element in the various Christian denominations have set up an hierarchy and limited the members in what they can do.  No where in scripture is it said only certain believers can serve communion or baptize new believers.  The only thing we can’t do as believers is perform marriages that are recognized as legal by the various governments.  It is not the paid ministers job to visit the sick and pray for them.  It is the duty of each and every believer.  Paid ministers shouldn’t be held to any higher of standard than what we call the “lay” people are held.  In God’s eyes, we are all equal.  Since God holds us all equal In His eyes, let us do likewise.  All believers are called to the priesthood.  All believers are called to serve God.  Let us all do our part to share God’s wonderful light.
