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...

Because He loved us, He washed us from our sins.
With His own Blood.
And then "made us..."
After washing sin from us, He made us into kings and priests. I don't know about you, but that boosts my self-image. We are not mere insignificant beings. If we do nothing else in this lifetime, we are kings and priests unto God, with full access to His mighty Throne and all the rights and privileges thereof.
I love how John tells us that we are kings and priests to Jesus' God, His Father. Isn't that something?! God Almighty wasn't just Jesus' Father, but He was Jesus' God while He lived as a human being. Wow!
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!And Amen!
Because of Him and Unto Him
