Crown him Lord of all
They called it Corona, so I read, because at first sight (with much lower powered microscopes than are available today), it looked like a crown. Now we can see more clearly we now know better. It has no crown. It looks evil, more like an old naval mine. Our proper response? Shun it!
But there is one whose crown becomes ever clearer the closer you look. Jesus, still the perfect human personification of God, now crowned with glory and honour (Heb 2:7). And our proper response? Draw closer, glorifying and honouring him in our lives as well as our words: adopting his values; trusting his promises to save us by leading us to his Father God to whom we can pray; doing his bidding; and not keeping quiet about it.
Almighty God, who holds all things in your all-capable hands, including each of us, whom you have called, through Jesus. Please keep us safe.
