What is the purpose of angels?

Here's the answer:

Angels have many purposes, but their main purpose is to serve God and worship Him.

Angels worship God, serve Him, serve the people God saves, deliver messages, fight spiritual battles, carry out God’s judgment, and help people understand God’s Word. Angels are unique creatures God has created and they have a big responsibility to serve God and help us. While we can only know the purpose of angels from what the Bible tells us, it is possible that angels do even more in Heaven.

Angels have the purpose to worship and serve God (Psalm 148:1-2). In the Bible, we see angels praising God’s name. Satan and the other fallen angels refused to worship and serve God, so God banished them out of Heaven. Angels serve God by obeying what He tells them to do. They do this by going where God wants them to go and delivering the messages that God wants them to deliver. The Bible tells us that Gabriel delivered the very important message to Mary that she was going to give birth to Jesus (Luke 1:26-38). God also used angels to help Moses receive the Law on Mount Sinai (Hebrews 2:2). How amazing! What would you think if you got a direct message from an angel?

God gives His angels the purpose of serving His people (Hebrews 1:14). The Bible tells us of many times when God sent His angels to protect and comfort people, including Elijah, Paul, Daniel, and Peter. Angels also fight spiritual battles against the darkness. The Bible tells us that angels will carry out judgment on the unbelieving world in the future (Revelation 7:1). While angels have many important purposes, they are not to be worshipped. God is the only One we should worship. Let’s praise God for His wonderful angels!
