The Crown of Glory
Why a crown? What is so important about a crown? Since the crown belongs on our head, could it be that through the fall, Adam lost his Crown or his divine mind and inherited a carnal mind or “crown of pride and shame?” Is this why the“second Adam“ Christ, bore the crown of thorns on behalf of all who would come to him by faith? Is His one act of faith, the reason that the Father crowned him, Lord of Lord and king of kings? Can we believers know that we too can have and be crowned with his glory? Yes, it is true. For Jesus promised it in John 17. This is the very reason why the Psalmist proclaims and sings this song of glory.
“Who is the king of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates even lift them up ye everlasting doors in the king of glory shall come in. Who is the king of glory? The Lord of host, he is the king of glory.
