#5344 – Rights & Duties

Good morning people who walk as royal kings and priests of the Most High God.

1 Samuel 10:25 NIV Samuel explained to the people the rights and duties of kingship. He wrote them down on a scroll and deposited it before the Lord. Then Samuel dismissed the people to go to their own homes.

God appointed kingship has both rights and duties.

As believers today, we are called kings and priests of God. Jesus is the King of kings, and we are those kings.

Revelation 1:5-6 NKJV …Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

We too have spiritual rights and we have spiritual duties.

We can’t claim the rights if we aren’t obedience to fulfill the duties. Nor should we focus on the need to fulfill our spiritual duties without the healthy platform of understanding and walking in our spiritual rights.

There is a holy responsibility on the people of God to walk in kingdom authority, and this includes both rights and duties.
