Davidisms - Angels

Angels.


Angels are essential to the Christmas story.


Before Jesus’s birth, God sent the angel Gabriel to enlighten Mary as to the calling on her life to become the mother of Jesus. “You will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus” (Luke 1:31).


An angel of the Lord also appeared to Joseph to encourage him. “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” (Matt. 1:20-21). The name Jesus means “Savior.”


A multitude of angels announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds tending their flocks nearby (Luke 2). Angels are messengers, God’s holy representatives, sent to affect his will on earth (Ps. 34:7).


And while angels are creatures - created by God to worship him (Isa. 6) - they are also “ministering spirits.” Sent to serve those who believe in Jesus (Heb. 1:14).


Apparently, angels are not only essential for the Christmas story, but for our stories here and now!


Therefore, this Christmas, and every day for the rest of your lives, ask God to send you an angel to help you with your problems.


God’s Word says they are readily available to minister to those who believe in Jesus.
