Privileges of Priesthood

Offering in Righteousness

Malachi 3:1-4 As members of the Royal Priesthood of God, we have been purified so that we might present offerings to the Lord in righteousness. We see what those offerings are, and are encouraged to enter fully into the ministry of our priesthood.

The Right to Eat from the Altar

Hebrews 13:9-14 Continuing our comparison of the Old and the New Covenant Priesthoods, we see the privileges each had regarding their respective altars. Jesus fulfilled the sacrifices of atonement that the priests of the Old Covenant had no right to eat from.

Access to God

Hebrews 10:19-25 We are reminded that if we are believers, then we are priests under the New Covenant, and that therefore we have many wonderful privileges. One great privilege that we have is access to God.
