Angels (1)

6 May 2023 ‘Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?’ Hebrews 1:14 NIV

God can reveal Himself to us and send us help in all kinds of ways. But we’re not always good at recognising them. When Jesus appeared to His disciples and calmed the storm, they thought He was a ghost. The Bible says angels are ‘ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation’. Have you ever seen an angel? You might not have recognised one – they aren’t necessarily dressed in white with dramatically arched wings. Sometimes they’re so ordinary that they’re overlooked. Hebrews 13:2 reminds us: ‘Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it’ (NIV). We might think that God doesn’t send angels because He’s given us His Holy Spirit to help, protect, and guide us. But remember that God sent an angel to deliver Peter from prison on the day before his execution. When Paul was making his way to Rome, he was on board a ship that would be destroyed by a ferocious storm. But God sent an angel to assure him he would survive it. So, Paul announced to the crew and passengers: ‘Take heart, for there will be no loss of life among you, but only of the ship. For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, “Do not be afraid, Paul”…Therefore take heart, men, for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me’ (Acts 27:22-25 NKJV). We may not be able to see angels, but we can be certain that they see us; in fact, they never take their eyes off you! (See Matthew 18:10.)
