“Thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and Honour”( Psa 8:5).
The LORD wants to give us two crowns – Crown of Glory and Crown of honour.
It is amazing to note that when God created us, he crowned us with these two crowns of Glory and Honour. But when Sin came in, the crowns fell from our heads- man lost his glory and Honour. “The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us that we have sinned!”( Lam 5:16). We are confounded: shame hath covered our faces… for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God “( Jer 51:51; Rom 3:23).
However, in this grace period, the Lord is creating a new man to Crown him once again with glory and Honour. How do we get these crowns of Glory and Honour? What is Glory? In Exodus 15:11 we read,” who is like thee, glorious in holiness..? Our God is glorious in holiness and therefore the real Glory is the holiness of God. What is honour?” Before honour is humility”( Prov 15:33). So, the Crowns of Glory and Honour speak of God’s holiness and God’s humility.
A crown is normally set on the head. The head shows our thoughts. Sometimes we can have holiness and humility in our words and in our appearances but they may not be in our thoughts. God wants our mind or thought to be filled with his humility and his purity – that will be Crowns of Glory and honour to us.
If holiness and humility do not adorn our thoughts, we are living in disgrace. “The crown is fallen from our head!”
