The Work of a Priest – 1 Peter 2:9

The Work of a Priest

A priest works for God. Peter tells us that we were not a nation, but now we’re God’s nation – God’s priests. Even the passage this relates to in Isaiah 61 mentions that we’re priests and ministers. We serve others on behalf of God. We do it so he becomes visible. Today, remember your forever job is a priest. Work for God today while you work for your boss or your customers.

Make time for people. Come in a little early or stay a bit late. If you’re working from home, don’t blow your commute time on Facebook. Show up a bit early and do some extra work to bless a coworker. Don’t wire your day so tight that no one can interrupt you. You’re a priest. Do your most important job and let God do his part. You are called by God to do what you do today, so that others may move one notch closer to him.
