How about you? Are you a Christian tonight? Do you want to be a part of this sanctified and special priesthood? Repent of your sins and be baptized to wash them away. That is what the people did in Acts chapter 2 and it says the Lord added them to His church (Acts 2:36-47). Those early Christians became a part of wonderful and eternal priesthood. One that promises Jesus to Shepherd you in this life as your High Priest and one that promises eternal life one day in the presence of Jesus forever. We encourage you to consider this great invitation. Contact in the ways we have mentioned if we can help you to become a Christian tonight. The priesthood of Jesus is available to all (Galatians 3:26-29)! We hope to see you next time on “Speaking The Truth In Love”!
