Man’s position was lower than the celestial beings. Angels including satan had more gifts and supernatural abilities. They were more powerful in the spiritual realm. But they were created this way for the purpose of serving man in the earth.
Yet, by the time God creates Adam and Eve, Lucifer becomes envious. What are these people who are weaker and less gifted and glorious by nature that you give them such a privilege, and that I should serve them? My paraphrase extracted from Psalm 8:4-8
Now, after the resurrection of Christ we were placed in Him and seated with Him at the right hand of the Father, far above all celestial beings position-ally. We are endowed with the authority of Christ, representing His right to rule on Earth as ambassadors of His Kingdom.
