Have you talked with an angel lately?
I’m reading the various accounts of Jesus’ birth in the gospels. My chronological Bible puts them all together and I’m amazed once again by all of the personal interaction humans had with angels during this time.
Angels were popping up all over!
I’m a little jealous. I think it would be fabulous – and a little scary – to talk with an angel. There’s a reason the first thing angels always say to humans is “Fear not”.
Such a moment! I know God sent you. I get it – this is a supernatural interaction and I am all ears.
But – then I realized. God still sends angels into my life today but they wear regular clothes and walk on two legs like me.
Since Jesus turned everything upside down by dying on the cross for us and sending his Spirit to live inside of believers, I think God often uses us average-type people to be angels for each other. When we obey the voice of the Holy Spirit, God can use us like he uses angels in the New Testament. God can speak through us into other people’s lives to love each other, encourage each other and to speak truth.
God has commissioned all believers to have a purpose and a part in his plan here on earth.
That’s you and me.
Wings are optional.
Love you, Abba.
