Better Than Angels

Then God said, “Let us make man in our image..”

Genesis 1:26

I was having a conversation with a friend over dinner and we were talking about angels and how cool they were.

My other friend then said, “They’re alright, I just wrote a paper on them. They have all the power but none of the benefits” I inquired further what she meant, to which she said, “Well, they’re awesome looking, but we were made in the image of God.”

And that’s the end of the argument.

I thought about it and my reaction was…I think she has a really valid point. I keep reading about descriptions of angels and heavenly beasts in the Bible and am awed by their glory and the creativity with which God used to make them (I mean a beast with a man’s face, a lion’s body, wings, and wheels!).

But then despite all my perceptions about how cool they are, I think that the Bible says if I want to see something cool, I should just look at the mirror.

I’m friggin’ awesome! I’m made in the image of the God of the universe!
