But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people (His own special people); that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 1 Peter 2:9 God calls us “a royal priesthood.” This means that we are kings as well as priest under the king-priesthood of Jesus Christ.
