Notes for 7.21.19

AT THE MOVIES

"Mary Poppins"

WE ALL WISH A BENEVOLENT GROWN-UP WOULD COME AND FIX OUR LIVES

THE “NO NONSENSE NANNY” IS A POPULAR CHARACTER

EVERY DAY COULD INCLUDE AN ADVENTURE

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD THE “PERFECT DAY”?

MARY POPPINS REMINDS US THAT ANGELS ARE REAL

Hebrews 13:1-2

Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters.

Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!

SOMETIME IN ETERNITY-PAST GOD CREATED A BOATLOAD OF ANGELS

PEOPLE DO NOT BECOME ANGELS, BUT SOMETIMES ANGELS LOOK LIKE PEOPLE FOR A SHORT PERIOD

WELCOME ANGELS BUT DON’T WORSHIP THEM

ANGELS ARE AGELESS

Luke 20:34-36

Jesus replied, “Marriage is for people here on earth. 

But in the age to come, those worthy of being raised from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage. 

And they will never die again. In this respect they will be like angels.

They are children of God and children of the resurrection.”

ANGELS HAVE MORE POWER THAN HUMANS

ANGELS ARE HOLY / SET APART / SINLESS

WHAT DO ANGELS DO?

They Worship God

Isaiah 6:1-3

They Serve Jesus

REMEMBER: 

EVERY DAY COULD INCLUDE AN ADVENTURE

SOMETIMES ANGELS PROTECT GOD’S PEOPLE

Hebrews 1:14

Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

Exodus 23

Psalm 34:7

For the angel of the Lord is a guard;

    he surrounds and defends all who fear him.

Acts 5:19-20

But an angel of the Lord came at night, opened the gates of the jail, and brought them out. Then he told them, “Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life!”

THEY WIN

Hebrews 2:16-18

We also know that the Son did not come to help angels; he came to help the descendants of Abraham. Therefore, it was necessary for him to be made in every respect like us, his brothers and sisters, so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest before God. 

Then he could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people. Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.
