Judges 13:1-25; Isaiah 33:1-24; 1 Corinthians 11:2-34

For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14

As we look at the growing chaos and darkness in our world, we might be tempted to think that things are out of control. Habakkuk gives us words of assurance that God is still in control. We also recollect the words of God through the psalmist, “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion” (Ps. 2:6). We need never fear that man will have his way, because God has determined that His well-beloved Son whom they crowned with thorns, will one day wear the crown of glory, and wield the scepter of universal sway, as King of kings and Lord of lords. —W. H. Burnett

Sinners in derision crowned Him,
Mocking thus the Saviour’s claim.
Saints and angels crowd around Him,
Own His title, praise His name. —Thomas Kelly
