As Senator Obama transitions into the presidency, he’ll need to select his staff. This morning, I heard he already selected his Chief of Staff. One decision he’ll soon entertain is who will comprise his Secret Service. If he selects this staff, I’m sure he’ll opt for courageous, not cowardly, individuals. I’m sure he’ll select people who prioritize his safety and are willing to sacrifice their lives to preserve his.
As he finalizes his decision, Senator Obama ought to pattern his Secret Service after JESUS’! JESUS’ Secret Service is so awesome, that even HIS enemies knew about them. In this text, Satan shares his insight on JESUS’ Secret Service, and he baits JESUS to put them to the test. JESUS was wise enough not to accept Satan’s tempting invitation, but just consider how awesome HIS Secret Service really is. JESUS has angels at HIS disposal, and they’ll assist HIM whenever needed. That’s why HE told Peter, “Don’t you realize that I could ask my Father for thousands of angels to protect us, and he would send them instantly?” (Matthew 26:53, New Living Translation).
I’m so glad that JESUS isn’t selfish with HIS Secret Service. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and even Peter can attest that JESUS will send HIS angels to protect us, too. No wonder David wrote, “For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him” (Psalm 34:7, New Living Translation).
