Laying Down the Crown

Many years ago, our school did a play at Christmas (before I even worked there). I will never forget it. It covered the entire life of Jesus from birth to resurrection. The beginning of the play started in Heaven right before Jesus came to earth. He stood and was removed of His fine clothing of honor, and then He removed his crown and laid it down and then exited heaven in the company of angels. The next scene was His birth in the stable. The play went on to show scenes of His life, death, and resurrection. The last scene of the play showed Him arriving back in Heaven where He was again dressed in robes of honor, and at last, His crown was replaced and He sat in His throne.

It then became real to me at how much Jesus sacrificed for us even to leave Heaven in the first place, not to mention how He died. He literally left His glory and honor and willingly humbled Himself for us all. I am so grateful that Jesus chose to lay down His crown.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!
