BY She Reads Truth

Since 2012, She Reads Truth has maintained a singular mission: to be women in the Word of God every day. Ten years later, our community includes “Shes” from across the globe, but our mission hasn’t changed.

Reading Scripture together is the centerpiece of what we do at She 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.

    Glacier View, Alaska. I hadn’t thought of all the verses talking about sacrifice as references to the priesthood, but it makes so much sense! Romans 12:1 is one of my favorites. There is more depth to it when you realize Jesus is the High Priest and presented Himself as a living sacrifice as an example to us… and He was the ultimate sacrifice to make a way for us to even be able to draw near and know our Creator!
