If you’ve ever built a house, you know it’s very rewarding. It’s even better if a great family lives there. Jesus is building a spiritual house, a living temple made of spiritual people. You might never have thought of yourself as a holy person or a priest, but Jesus said we are all part of a royal priesthood. As part of God’s holy nation, Christians have a special role to play in helping others become who God made them to be.
