What Angels Want
“What could an angel want from a man?” A child in a TV show asked in bemusement.
My knee jerk answer was: Nothing.
But – that's wrong. Angels aren’t God. God needs nothing. The Bible tells us angels want something that men have:
“…When they spoke of the things that have now been told you by those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even angels long to look into these things.”
-- 1 Peter 1:12
The mysteries of the gospel.
As sons and daughters of God, we get to study and understand (however incompletely) salvation. What is more, we are invited to experience it -- the mending of our relationship with God. Angels watch in awe, desiring a peak into God’s great design to restore of our relationship with Him. That is what some men have that they want. Angels desire to look into the profound mystery of Jesus, God in the flesh, motivated by a Creator's love, come to rescue mankind.
What a treasure we carry in clay vessels!
“…we have this treasure in jars of clay…” 2 Corinthians 4:7
