  4. Gravity of Unfaithfulness (2:8–9)

  5. Grace of the Faithful Priest
    • Malachi 3:1–4

Implications

  • Trust in the one Faithful Priest who has made the once-for-all sacrifice
  • Pursue being a faithful priest (1 Peter 2:4–10) by offering spiritual sacrifices that are pleasing to God
  • Repent of any ways you are not honoring God and serving Him with your whole heart

Application to your life

  • What areas of your life and your worship of God are lacking faithfulness?
  • How can you pursue greater faithfulness in your priestly ministry? Consider 1 Timothy 4:16 and how you can pay close attention to your life and your teaching.
