The Priesthood of All Believers

 

              October 31, 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.  If you’re not familiar with this subject, let me clue you in!  On October 31, 1517, a priest named Martin Luther protested several things going on in the Roman Catholic Church.  This protest led to the Protestant Reformation.  Our own Methodist denomination traces its roots back to this important event.

 

One of the issues most important to Martin Luther was the concept of the “Priesthood of all

Believers.”  Luther believed that the call to live a holy life in service to others is not limited to clergy, but it is God’s call on every Christian’s life.  This belief says that this ministry is for every follower of Jesus.

 

Even if you haven’t heard the phrase “priesthood of all believers,” I’m, sure you have seen it lived out.  If you have witnessed Christians here at St. Andrew, preparing meals and serving them at MUST, Christians supporting Family Promise, teaching Sunday school, going on mission trips to Haiti and ASP etc., then you have observed Martin Luther’s “Priesthood of All Believers” lived out.

 

  All of these things point to people who love Jesus and take seriously the words from I Peter 2,

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood.”

 

I am thankful that 500 years ago, an event occurred that followers of Jesus were freed to be servants in the Kingdom of God!

    

   

In Christ,

Mack
