Read James 5:16-18
Amy Houghtaling preached a bit ago about how we were all actually priests once we are saved and sealed with the Holy Spirit. And a large duty of the priests was to pray for the flock.
- Do you see yourself as someone who is righteous, who can be effective in praying for others? Why or why not?
Read 1 Peter 2:5, 9
5 You also are like living stones. As you come to Christ, you are being built into a house for worship. There you will be holy priests. You will offer spiritual sacrifices. God will accept them because of what Jesus Christ has done… 9 But God chose you to be his people. You are royal priests. You are a holy nation. You are God’s special treasure. You are all these things so that you can give him praise. God brought you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
