Michael, the arch angel, means “Who is like God?”
Lucifer, the fallen angel, means “I will be like the Most High.”
Lucifer tried to overthrow God and heaven so he could become the one everyone worshipped. Michael serves God as his highest ranking angel.
The battle between good and evil is the battle between God and Satan. Satan leads his rebellion against his own creator while God, uniquely divine, works all things for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose.
Whenever I yearn to be like God, I need to ask myself:
Do I want to be like God in character?
Do I want to be like God in that I want all of creation to worship me?
Lucifer wanted the latter. We should want the former.
What about you? Which do you want?
