    Yes, I think of myself as a priest, although I prefer the term minister of the Gospel. I don’t know about Royal. That does not seem to fit me, but it does fit the ministry and the one who is our High Priest and the object of our ministry, Jesus Christ. He is designated by God as our High Priest (Hebrews 5:10).

    I also strongly agree with JD that schism in the chosen people of God caused by the rise of the office of the Clergy and the delegation of the ministry to professionals is one of the biggest reasons the church today is not the real Church Jesus is building. John Wesley famously said, “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.” We are all ministers of God’s reconciliation and Ambassadors for Christ (2Corinthians 5:19-20). Collectively we are a Royal Priesthood and together we can change our World.
