Seen by AngelsDaily Thoughts
1 Timothy 3:16 “Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness splrings is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels…”
Part of achieving godliness is being ‘seen by angels‘, which sounds very spiritual and wacky but actually points to a very simple principle.
Angels are described as ‘messengers of God‘, in that they come from God to deliver his word, aid and protection to us his people. We can read much about this in scripture; angels appearing to give instruction, to rescue and protect, even to bring death and judgement.
But messengers are never just one way! Angels come from God with many things, but what do they return with? They return with glory from witnessing your deeds.
Angels see you…and give God glory!
How does me stacking chairs by myself glorify God? How does me privately giving money to church glorify God? No one sees me do it, so who gives God the glory? Angels do! That is why it is so important that our faith manifests into deeds, so that our actions give God glory. Our faith is dead without deeds, it’s like angels need to witness something to take back to God.
