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 where 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, king of kings, and lord of lords? Can we believers know that we too can have him be crowned with his glory? Yes, it is true. For Jesus promised it, John 17. This is the very reason why the Psalmist proclaims and sings the song of glory.
“Who is the king of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle, lift up your heads, oh, you gates ever lift them up, he everlasting doors, and the king of glory shall come in.
