Day15

A Royal Priesthood

from the This Is the Church reading plan


1 Peter 2:4-9, Hebrews 7:22-28, Hebrews 8:1-2, Hebrews 10:19-22, Hebrews 13:15, 2 Corinthians 2:14-15, Romans 12:1, Revelation 1:4-6, Revelation 5:10


Since 2015, He Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be men in the Word of God every day. Seven years later, our community includes “Hes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at He Reads Truth. As we spend time as a community reading This Is The Church, we encourage you to start by reading the daily Scripture on your  own. Then join us here to engage and encourage one another as we respond to what we’ve read. Each day for this series, we’ll include a brief summary of the reading along with a prompt for conversation. 


The Church is a new priesthood, different from the priesthood of the Old Testament. Jesus Christ is our High Priest who leads us in offering our lives in worship as a living sacrifice to God.

Today, along with responding to the reading, share with the community in the comments what part of the world you are reading from.

    I am in the very small town of Rest Haven, Georgia. A suburb of Atlanta. I praise God we now have a high priest in heaven and are not dependent on human priest. We all sin and when I read the old testament I see the problems the Levites created when the sons did not follow in the steps of the fathers. Thank God for Jesus, the ripping of the veil and our ability to communicate directly with God via the cleansing blood of Christ!

    Glad to be part of the Church in Saskatoon, Canada, and to share in the same redeeming work of our one and only great High Priest.

    I’ve always loved the finality and totality of the verses in Hebrews – “ONCE and FOR ALL” – knowing there is nothing we or others will ever need to add to secure our redemption. Jesus took care of it once and for all on the cross!

    Reading from Carrollton, Virginia! (about 30 min from Virginia Beach)

    Love this description of Jesus – how we are made right with God through His sacrifice, the Great High Priest! What an example we have.
