Yesterday I preached a sermon called, “The 5 Doors of Destiny” at Zion in Spokane, WA. You can hear that sermon here.
Or, you can receive the point I was trying to make just by reading the two paragraphs below.
A legitimate question to ask is, “If Jesus is now Lord of the world, why is it still filled with evil, wickedness, pain, and chaos?”
The answer: Jesus, the ruler of the world, has chosen to rule in and through his people. For this reason, the Scriptures call us “kings and priests” on the earth. Or as Peter put it, “a royal priesthood”, bringing us back to God's original plan for human beings.
