Jonathan Edwards gives three reasons why human beings, though sinful and inferior in wisdom and strength, will forever exceed angels in glory and honor:
- Angels were made to serve God by serving man, but man was made to serve God directly.
- Human grace, holiness, and love are greater virtues than angelic wisdom and strength.
- Believers are united to Christ in a way angels never will be.
