Glorified saints are equal to the angels.
I. IN THEIR DIGNIFIED POSITION.
II. IN THEIR SUBLIME WORSHIP.
III. IN THEIR UNDECAYING STRENGTH (Psalm 103:20; Zechariah 12:8). Like angels, the dead in Christ shall henceforth excel in strength. Weariness and fatigue shall be for ever unknown.
IV. IN THEIR MINISTERING SERVICE (Hebrews 1:14).
V. IN LOVING OBEDIENCE. We read of angels that they "do His commandments, hearkening to the voice of His word."
VI. IN THEIR EARNEST STUDY OF THE MYSTERY OF REDEEMING LOVE. Speaking of the Gospel and its priceless privileges and blessings, Peter says, "Which things the angels desire to look into" (1 Peter 1:12).
VII. IN THE JOYFUL INTEREST WHICH THEY FEEL IN THE SALVATION OF SINNERS.
VIII. IN THEIR IMMORTAL YOUTH. Angels grow not old, as men on earth do. They wear no traces of age; revolving years tell not on them.
