Bible Reading: Matthew 1:18-25
Monday, December 22, 2014
Hebrews 1:14 tells a little more about angels. “All the angels are spirits who serve God and are sent to help those who will receive salvation.” Angels are mentioned several times in the verses that tell us about Jesus’ birth. An angel spoke to Mary and to Joseph. Yesterday we talked about the angels who appeared to the shepherds.
Angels are God’s messengers. They bow down and worship God, just like we do. But we never should worship angels. Revelation 22:8b-9a says, “After I heard and saw them, I bowed down to worship at the feet of the angel who showed them to me. But the angel said to me, ‘Don’t worship me! I am a servant like you.’”
Angels are an important part of the Christmas story. But Jesus is the most important! Worship Him this Christmas season and every day of the year! — IMJ
“And then, when God presents his firstborn Son to the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’” Hebrews 1:6
PRAYER: God, I worship Your Son, Jesus. In His name. Amen.
