Angels Are Servants and Not to Be Worshipped (3)

Heb 1:13 But to which of the angels has He ever said, "Sit at My right hand until I set Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet"? (14) Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth for service for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?

[Part 3 of 3] All the saints have at least one angel, one angelic bodyguard, assigned to serve them and protect them. This is proved by the Lord's word in Matthew 18:10 where He charges us not to despise "one of these little ones, for...their angels in the heavens always behold the face of My Father Who is in the heavens." Furthermore, when Peter was released from prison and was knocking at the door of the gate, those inside the house told the young woman, who kept saying that Peter was knocking, "It is his angel" (Acts 12:15). Although the angels serve us and may protect us, we should not regard them as mediators. Because they are servants, we should not worship them. We are identified with the One who is the Head of all the angels, and in Him we have been made full. If we are clear about this, we shall never be deluded into worshipping angels. Rather, we shall have the proper knowledge that, in a very real sense, because we are one with the Head of the angels, we are higher than they are. Actually, we are partners of the Christ who is the Head over them, and in Him we are complete. This fact of having been made full in Christ is versus the worship of angels. Because we are one with Christ, we should never worship angels.
