Chris Takashima teaches on the new covenant priesthood, exhorting us as body of believers to walk in the fellowship of brotherhood and the priesthood of God. Through Jesus, God has given us the ministry of reconciliation. We can choose to see each other not according to the flesh but by the Spirit of God and what Heaven declares over us. When we see each other from a heavenly perspective we can contend for others from a heavenly place. And during times of trial, we can be assured, that our suffering is far overshadowed by the eternal glory that we are receiving in Jesus. It is never in vain.(2 Corinthians 5:18, 1 Peter 2:9, Hebrews 5), Sunday, January 17th, 2016.
