Please Lord, Crown Me
I have always enjoyed playing checkers as a child. I love to make it across to the other side because when you do you get to say, “Crown me”. That means that your checker piece is topped with another checker piece, a crown. Now this two tier checker piece is called a king and is rewarded with the right and privilege to move on your turn in any direction one spot at a time.
The crowning of a checker piece is very much like becoming a Child of the King. When we accept Jesus Christ into our hearts as our Lord and Savior we become a Christian (a Christ child). It is amazing to be a child of the King of Kings. The scripture tells us we are joint heirs with Christ.
Romans 8:17 “Now if we are children, then we are heirs–heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.”
We are heirs of God, and co-heirs with Christ. It means that we are given the greatest relationship the world can ever receive. As Christians, we now have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, God’s only son. Our relationship with Christ allows us inner access to the throne of God. We can meet with God, communicate with God, and worship Him. We don’t have to have a priest, a pastor, or a saint be our intermediary. We can go directly to Christ with any need that we have because we are a Child of the KING! Go to Him, communicate with Him, worship Him.
Let this word be an encouragement to you as we begin a new year!
Blessings, Pastor Tony
