Jesus Above All: Angels Worship Him

“And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, ‘Let all God’s angels worship him.’ In speaking of the angels he says, ‘He makes his angels winds, his servants flames of fire.’ ” (Hebrews 1:6-7)

Angels are awesome beings. In showing us this week all the ways that Jesus is above all, including the angels, the writer is not trying to diminish the angels. He’s showing just how truly great Jesus is. Those awesome angels worship him!

Can you imagine that scene? Jesus returning to earth in fire with an army of mighty angelic beings. Nobody will want to be on the wrong side – though many will be. And the angels will obey the commands of Jesus as they accomplish his mission of judgment.

To be on the side of the angels, you must put your faith in Jesus – and nobody else.

Think: If someone asked you how to be sure they were ready for the day described in 2 Thessalonians 1, what would you tell them?

Pray: Priase Jesus that the angels worship him and obey his commands.

Do: Read more about the day Jesus and the angels will arrive in 2 Thessalonians 1:3-12.
