The scripture for today, January 14 (1/14), is Hebrews 1:14 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Are not all angels ministering spirits, sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
Have you ever wondered if the Bible really mentions guardian angels? Well, here it is. How wonderful! How reassuring! But the angels do not minister to everyone ~ just to the saved who will inherit salvation.
As much as they minister to us, however, we are not to worship them and we are not to pray to them. For a while ~ and still some today ~ it was popular to collect pictures and statues of angels. Some people were saying there is no God, but there are guardian angels. Some people who do believe in God bypass Him and ask angels to help them, kind of like going to the peasant instead of the king.
Where do they think angels come from? God created them to be the servant class. We are not to adore, worship or pray to angels (Revelation 19:10; 22:9).
So, yes, we do have guardian angels. Let us be grateful God loves us enough to send the angels to minister to us until we reach his home, heaven. Then, we and the angels will bow down together to the God of the universe and Him will we worship.
A CHILD’S LIFE OF CHRIST: SHADOW OF DEATH gently tells the story of Jesus doing what he did not want to do but was encouraged and comforted by the angels. Later the angels gladly announced he had come back to life! To BUY NOW, click a picture or paste this: https://amzn.to/2FyiCUn

I didn’t know we couldn’t pray to angels. My mother does it all the time. Thank you for the giveaway.
In the book of Revelation, the Apostle John bows down to an angel and the angel rebukes him. It is like bowing down to your servant. Elsewhere in the Bible (I think I Corinthians) it says Christians will judge the angels.
Yes, angels are probably bigger than us and can fly, but they can not say or do anything without God’s permission. The book of Jude says that Satan wanted Moses’ body and the angel Michael said, “The Lord rebukes you”.
Colossians 2:18 says, “Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize by delighting in self-abasement and the worship of the angels, taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind,”
Hebrews 9 says Jesus is our only intercessor.
I hope this helps.
