    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Sunday, June 30

    [/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]You yourselves will become to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.—Ex. 19:6. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Was Jehovah’s promise that the[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] Israelites could furnish[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] “a kingdom of priests†[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]an empty one? Not[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]at all. If they sincerely tried to[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] obey, they would have this opportunity—[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] but not under the Law.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    Why not?
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Gal. 3:19-25)[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] For those[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] who faithfully endeavored to observe[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] it, the Law had the effect of[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]preserving pure worship. It made[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the Jews aware of their transgressions[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] and of the need for a sacrifice[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]greater than their high priest[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] could offer. It was a tutor that[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] would lead them to the Christ,[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]or Messiah, titles that mean[/FONT] “[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]Anointed One.â€[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] However, when[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the Messiah arrived, he would introduce[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]the new covenant foretold[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] by Jeremiah. Those who accepted[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the Christ were invited to[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]become party to the new covenant[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] and would actually become[/FONT] “[FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]a kingdom of priests.†[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
