Week 32: Monday

To live as a citizen of the Kingdom, we must see ourselves in light of God’s Word concerning us. We who believe in Christ have been grafted into a Story so big that the entire universe and all of time will not contain it. We are now, by faith, recipients of the Kingdom’s authority and rule, baptized by the Spirit as members into the body of Christ. We have been granted an entirely new identity with a new nature, set free from the futility of empty religion and legalism, all in order that we might represent Christ in this world as his ambassadors and agents.

After he was raised from the dead, Jesus gave his disciples a mandate that we call the Great Commission (Matt. 28.18-20). He commissioned them to go to make disciples of all nations, baptizing and teaching until the end of the age. We stand today in the lineage of those disciples. We have received not only the salvation they preached, but also the commission they pursued.

Jesus, Lord and Christ, be with us as we seek to fulfill your commission until you return.

Monday: Dan. 2-3; Jer. 7.1-8.3

Weekly Reflection on the Priesthood of all Believers
Whatever the case, the activities of representation, peacemaking, and service (as part of a team) were integral to be both an emissary and a Hebrew priest.
