I am your fellow servant. Revelation 19:10
Followers of Christ have a lot in common with angels. Sure, there are big differences. But twice in the book of Revelation, an angel described himself as a “fellow servant” with John. In Revelation 19:10, the apostle John was so overwhelmed by the angel, he fell down before him. The angel said, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God!”
In Revelation 22:9, John again fell at the feet of a glorious angel, who said, “See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book.”
If an angel appeared to you, you might be so startled you’d fall at his feet. But he would pick you up and reassure you of something. He would say something, like, “You and I are fellow servants. We are partners in ministry. We are here side by side to worship and serve God.”
What a glorious thought! Angels, like us, are soldiers in God’s army, ready to march for His glory.
How delightful it is to know that the angels are our fellow servants; that they are co-laborers with us in the Lord’s kingdom. Reverend Sabin Hough
