Divine Ministering Spirits

Call to Worship


Hebrews 1: 14

1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?


Divine ministration is needed to give power and efficiency to the church in this world. God’s family on earth, subject to temptations and trials, is very near His heart of love. He has ordained that communication be kept up between heavenly intelligences and His children on this earth. Angels from the courts above are sent forth to minister to those who shall be heirs of salvation, those who as faithful warriors are partaking of Christ’s suffering. Christ is represented as dwelling in His people. They must be fed with meat in due season. Therefore a connection has been established between them and the church above. God cares for His human creation as a husbandman cares for a vineyard. Christ declares, “I am the true Vine, and My Father is the Husbandman.” What a wonderful representation! God is not only the keeper, but the owner of the vineyard. {ST February 14, 1900, par. 6}


He is the vine and we are the branches. It is through the vine that we receive life. However, the branch needs attachment to the vine to receive life. It is this connection with heaven which keeps us fed with meat in due season. What love God gives to His children. What a privilege it is to be heirs of the Royal Family. While we remain on earth, God provides angels from above to minister unto us. They are all round about us, ready to minister to our every need. Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus that you might live and dwell in God’s vineyard forever and always.


Dear Father in heaven,

We thank You for providing a constant connection between earth and heaven. To be able to come into Your presence to speak with You and hear Your voice. That we may bring our petitions before You and let You know what is on our hearts. We thank You for all of Your heavenly angels that are always ready to minister unto us. May Your Spirit live and dwell within us that we may live and dwell in You. We pray that You feed us with meat in due season. Do not take Your Spirit or light away from us. We are sorry, repent of our sins, and pray for forgiveness. This we pray, in the name of Christ Jesus. Amen.
