Jesus is Above the Angels

So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs. HCSB

Some people are fascinated with angels and even collect angel figurines to use as home décor. We have ben given Willow Tree angel figurines for our home. Each angel has a name, a different pose, and some even hold items in their hands. The one that sits on our mantle is the “Thank You” angel and is posed with her hands behind her back holding flowers. The implication is that she is getting ready to give the flowers to someone as as way to say “Thank You”.

There were some false teachers in the early church that taught that God could be approached only through angels instead of directly. Some people worshiped angels but the Bible is clear that we are not to worship angels (see Colossians 2:18 and Revelations 19:1-10). Jesus is above all (including angels). He alone deserves our praise and worship. We can go directly to Him through prayer.

Challenge: Thank God for His angels that serve Him and are sometimes used by God to influence our decisions or protect us. Thank God for Jesus who is above the angels and is the one interceding for us before God, the Father.
