Every believer is a priest, a minister of the Gospel! This shouldn’t surprise us. It’s been God’s plan all along.
God chose Israel from among the nations and made her his own. Why?
You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. Now if you obey me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. (Exodus 19:4-6, NIV, emphasis added)
