What Do Angels Do?

By Rick Bayer, November 28, 2021

“Are not all angels spirits in the divine service, sent to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” Hebrews 1:14 NRSV

1. Angels lead in of Jesus - Revelation 5

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying:“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” Rev. 5:11-12 NIV

2. Angels bring God's in times of temptation - Matthew 4

3. Angels bring God's in times of agony - Luke 22:43

4. Angels bring God's in our dark hours

Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels. 1 Timothy 3:16

5. Angels proclaim the hope of Christ’s - Matthew 28:1-3

6. Angels announced Jesus’ - John 1:14

Questions for personal reflection and/or Discipleship Group:


  • When you hear ‘angel testimonies’ like you’ll hear in this series, do you tend to believe the story or are you skeptical?
  • Have you ever encountered ‘someone or something’ that you thought was perhaps an angel? What did it do for you?

Go to the Source:

  • Read Hebrews 1:14.
  • React to this idea that angels are ‘ministering spirits sent to serve'
  • What does it do for you knowing that angels are sent to serve you and your fellow human beings?

Live it out:

  • Rick said the person at the line-up could be an angel in disguise. Do you ever think of that? How could that change your interactions with others?
  • How can you open your heart to be more aware of God’s presence?
