Ministering Spirits

Our Protestant churches have never been very enthusiastic about the Bible references to the many kinds of angels and angelic beings which make up the Lord's heavenly host. Because we do not see them, we generally do not discuss them. There seem to be many Christians who are not sure what they should believe about God's heavenly messengers.

In short, where the matter of Bible teaching about angels is concerned, we have come into a sad state of neglect and ignorance.

Personally, I despise the cynical references to angels and the comic jokes about them. The preacher who reported his guardian angel had had a hard time keeping up with him as he sped over the highway spoke in bad taste and probably in ignorance. If that is the best a preacher can say about the guardian angels or God's angelic host, he needs to go back to his Bible.

Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14

Angels depicted with huge wings has contributed to the lessened attention we give them these days. In biblical accounts angels sometimes appear hardly distinguishable from human beings. But angels are sent to serve us as ministering spirits. What service have we experienced unawares?

Lord, for whatever and whoever You send to aid me in my walk with You, I give You thanks.
