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.

    Denise, the reading about “a Royal Priesthood” is to show the requirement for blood being shed as an atonement for sin is no longer required, since Jesus is our high priest and completely fulfilled that need in his bloodshed on the cross for all mankind; the people of the past, present, and future. In the Old Testament, God made the requirement of needing a high priest to shed blood of a perfect spotless animal to cleanse and atone for sin. This reading today is to show in multiple places in God’s Word that it is no longer required, since Jesus is our high priest. However, we, as believers, are to present ourselves to the Lord as willing sacrifices,to do whatever he has called us to do, and that’s the very least we can do- given all he has done for us! Does this help your understanding?
