THEME: SIGNIFICANCE OF ANGELS
“Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
-Angels are also valuable in ministering to God’s beloved. After Jesus was tempted by the devil, angels came and ministered to Him (Matthew 4:11). They stand before God in His earthly sanctuary and do service to God for the sake of those who will inherit salvation.
Angels are immortal spiritual beings which were created by God to perform several functions that we cannot exhaust in this thematic exposition. Firstly, angels convey messages to God’s people. Archangel Gabriel is the chief messenger as we have seen in Luke 1:11-39. They also offer us protection (Psalms 91:11; Acts 27:23-25), and combat evil (Revelation 12:7). They serve God by performing His will at His direction (Numbers 22:21-35). They also praise God in multitudes Revelation 5:11-12 and rejoice when sinners come to repentance. They will be involved in carrying out God’s judgments and will separate the righteous from the wicked (2 Kings 19:35; Matthew 13:24-30). Lastly, they are instrumental in encouraging us God’s saints (Luke 22:43). Some have misconceptions and go ahead to worship angels; looking to them as mediators between God and man. We should note that there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).
We give thanks to You Lord our God for You are good and Your love endures forever. None can compare to You Jesus, we exult You and praise Your holy name. As we continually offer to You a sacrifice of praise, may we always please You with the fruit of our lips. Guide us always in the way we should go and make all our paths straight. May You always send Your angels dear Father to minister unto us; Your children, according to Your will. May You always hear us and answer us according to Your will. May You hear our hearts desires and answer us dear Jesus. All glory, honor, power and praise belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
