• “We need Jesus!…He is our joy…without Him, the world and all it calls good, is poverty, wretchedness and woe! With Him, a wilderness is a paradise, a cottage a palace and the lowliest spot of earth a little heaven below” – Mary Winslow

The Same Angels by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/04/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In the Gospel of Mark, we read about Jesus fasting for forty days in the desert. During that time He faced intense temptation from Satan. After the battle, we read that angels attended to Him. They served Him when He was physically and emotionally spent.

Now here’s something amazing: According to Hebrews 1, angels are available to attend to us, just as they helped Jesus. Hebrews says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”

In that verse the Greek word used to describe the help angels give us is the same word that’s used in Mark to describe the help they gave Jesus. Maybe you’re in a time of intense temptation or some other battle. God has unseen servants available to strengthen you—just as He helped His Son. All you need to do is ask for His help.

  • “In all places and at all times, we can have that familiar friendship, we can have Him with us; and there may be through the day a constant interchange of private words, of little offerings, too small to have any name attached to them—by which the bonds of that familiar friendship grow closer and more real, until it comes to that special personal intimacy, which we call sanctity.” – Janet Erskine Stuart, 1857-1914
