Identity, Part Two: Royal Priestseries: Identity: God's Chosen People
The Greek word for "royal" translates as "support of/to the people". It's a title of service and humility. Not how we typically think of royalty. This is then tied to the idea of priesthood. The priests care for the relationship between God and the people. The priest assures the people that God is with them. The priest grasps the destructiveness, and he brokenness of sin, and at the same time the beauty, healing and depth of grace.
