Angels want to serve you

Most people have grown up hearing about guardian angels. We’re taught that they’re here to keep a watchful eye on us and protect us, but did you know they are also on standby to serve us? 

If you’re like me, the thought of a glorious angel waiting at my disposal to “serve” me feels hard to believe, and even a bit uncomfortable. Yet Hebrews 1:14 states, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” 

Bruce Barton speaks on this verse in his Life Application Bible commentary, writing, “Angels are higher than people in creation’s hierarchy (see Psalm 8:4), being created first and with higher function. But God has reversed the order and instructed the angels to serve his people.”  


Psalm 91 tells us, “For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.” (v 11-12 NLT).
