WE TOO ARE MESSENGERS AND SERVANTS OF GOD
????Dan 7:9-10, 13-14 or Rev 12:7-12a; Ps 138:1-2a, 2bcd-3, 4-5 (R.v.1b); Matt 9:9-13
My dear, every kingdom normally has its messengers and servants that attend to the needs of the king and his household, and run errands for him. That is the role that the angels and archangels play in the kingdom of God.
Remember the purpose for which Jesus came, “To bring good news to the poor…proclaim liberty to captives and sight to the blind; to free the oppressed and announce the Lord’s year of mercy” (Luke 4:18-19). The angels helped in fulfilling these at some points in time.
????The archangel Gabriel, whose name means “the power of God,” was a messenger of the good news (Luke 1:26-28)
????The archangel Raphael, whose name means “God heals,” administered God’s healing (Tobit 12:1-10)
????The archangel Michael, whose name means “who is like God,” was the leader of God’s army that defeated the Satan (Rev 12:7)
Can you see their roles were all connected to the salvific functions of Christ? If we are truly servants of Christ, we shall also be angels of good news, healing and protection of God’s people.
May the archangels assist you in your day to day Christian journey and give you a message of healing and transformation today. Amen.
Have a great day ahead. Peace be with you.
