The Body of Christ is a priesthood (Revelation 1:6), and the function of priests
is to minister unto the Lord. Our first responsibility, then, is to worship the

Do you want to move into all that God has available for you? It will cost you. It will cost everything that you have and more. It will also cost you everything that you are. It will cost you your entire world.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has set the world in man. In a real sense each person is a world in himself, and your world is different from anyone else’s. It is the day when two worlds collide.
