HAVE WE CROWNED HIM
“And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.”
Revelation 14:14 KJV
Leila N. Morris wrote a beautiful hymn about our precious Saviour “Crown Him”. “Crown Him! Crown Him! Crown the Savior King of kings; In your hearts enthrone Him, Lord and Master own Him; Crown Him! Crown Him! While heaven exultant rings; Crown the blessèd Savior King of kings.”
One of the definitions that I found for enthrone in Webster’s Dictionary is “to seat in a place associated with a position of authority or influence”. Have we given our Saviour first place in our heart, in our time and in our life? After all that Jesus has done for us, He deserves to have first place.
Not only should He have first place, we should also include Him in our conversations. Many times we brag about our children and grandchildren. Do we brag about Jesus and the things He has done for us? We should include Jesus in our conversations because He deserves all the praise we can give Him.
What about giving our testimony? When your pastor asks for testimonies, do you stand up and praise Jesus for Who He is and for all He has done for you? We need to tell others about all He has done for us and all He does for us every day. Many people need to hear your testimony.
May God help us to crown Jesus the King of our life and our heart. It is a privilege to be loved by the Saviour of the world. All hail, King Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb of God!
