I recently attended a wedding in which the couple truly wanted to make the message of Christ come through loud and clear. The ceremony was beautiful and was a wonderful message of God’s desire to enter into a union with us, His church. Since the beginning of mankind, God instituted marriage to be a representation and reminder of the ultimate marriage of Himself to His bride. In our fallen and sinful state we have tainted that image and made it something it was never intended be. But through the redeeming work of Christ at work in us, we are able to offer the world a better portrait of what marriage is meant to be. However, that is another message and not the reason I am writing today. There is one truth that really hit me heavy during the ceremony that I would like to explore in deeper detail. One of the hymns sung during the ceremony was “All Hail the Power of Jesus Name“. One of the lines of that hymn is “…and crown Him Lord of all”.
