Our Vocation as a Kingdom of Priests

Examining the functions and responsibilities of the ancient Jewish priesthood, as well as the life and instruction of St. John of Kronstadt, patron saint of priests, we will attempt to glean the details of our roles as priests of creation, as mentioned in 1 Peter 2:5.  We have all, by our Baptism, been ordained to be a Kingdom of Priests.  This series will help us understand our role in this Holy Priesthood.

The Kingdom of God is Near to Us

As we pray the Orthodox Prayer to the Holy Spirit, this truth is communicated to us, "O Heavenly King, O Comforter, the Spirit of Truth Who art in all places and fillest all things."  As Christians, do we live in the truth that God is in all places and fills all things; that He permeates everything in in every aspect of our lives?  Or, do we live a life that somehow compartmentalizes God; a life that believes in the experience of God when we are doing the "Christian things" such as prayer, worship, or ministry; but not so much at other times in the most mundane moments of our lives?  The Incarnation brought the Kingdom of Heaven to earth for the experience of mankind unto the salvation of our souls.  God is never distant and there is never a moment of our lives when we cannot fellowship and experience God and all of the benefits of His Kingdom now manifest in the earth.  The purpose of this series is to assist us in living the true Christian life where the Kingdom of God is near to us.
