Free PowerPoint Sermon: Crown Him, Crown Him

Before time began, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit lived together in Heaven.
They decided to make the world and to fill it with animals and people.
The Father had Jesus speak His Word and at the Word of Jesus, the world was created.
Jesus made the world, all the animals and people, but there was a problem.
God knew that people were going to do bad things. They would rebel against Him and they would eventually be destroyed by sin.
Jesus would go down to Earth and lay down His life. He would die to save people from their sin.
It was the only way!
Jesus stood up from His throne, took off the crown
“Long before the world was made, God chose Christ to be given…” 1 Pet.1:20 NL
“And Christ became a human being and lived here on earth among us…”
1 John 1:14 TLB
Jesus spent His days on Earth teaching people the truth about God and healing them.
“… He taught in their meeting places and preached…”
“..Jesus also healed every kind of disease and sickness.”
Mat. 9:35 CEV
Some people were very jealous of Jesus, and they wanted to hurt Him. They wanted to kill Him.
But most of the people liked Him—at first—and when He came to town riding on a donkey, they wanted to make Him their King.
“Your King is coming to you… He is riding on a young donkey… They brought the donkey… They put their clothes on the donkey and Jesus sat on it. Many people put their coats down on the road. Other people cut branches from the trees and put them along the way. The people… called out, “Greatest One! … Greatest One in the highest heaven.” Mat. 21: 5-9 NLV
Jesus is the Greatest One of all. He is the King of
all Kings. But, He didn’t look like a King that day because He wasn’t wearing His Heavenly crown.
Sadly, not long after Jesus rode into town on a donkey, people began listening to the lies and bad things the jealous men were saying.
Soon, more and more people hated Jesus and wanted to kill Him. They shouted, “Crucify Him, crucify Him!”
They gave Him a very different crown! An ugly crown of long, painful, sharp thorns.
They began to laugh and make fun of Jesus. They acted like He was a fool to ever think He could be their King.
“… They twisted some thorn-twigs into a crown and put it on his head and put a stick in his right hand. They bowed low before him and jeered at him with the words, “Hail, your majesty, king of the Jews!””
“Then they spat on him, took the stick and hit him on the head with it. And when they had finished their fun, they… led him off for crucifixion.” Mat 27:28-31 Phillips
From before time, all of Heaven worshipped Jesus around His throne. They worshipped Him all day, every day!
But now, He wears an ugly, cruel and hateful crown of thorns. The people are jeering, mocking and having a laugh at Jesus’ expense. How dare He call Himself a King?!
But, Jesus is The King!
Even on the cross, wearing that mocking crown of thrones, He knew it in His heart.
“Jesus said, ‘My kingdom is not from this world. My kingdom is from another place.’
‘So you are a king, then!’ said Pilate. Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. In fact, that’s the reason I was born…”
They didn’t make Jesus their King, instead they killed Him and they put Him in a tomb.
But, He didn’t stay in that tomb. Just three days later, he came back to life and walked out of the tomb.
Jesus went back to His home in Heaven, sat on His throne, and placed His rightful crown back on His head.
“The one who sat there shone like jasper and ruby. Around the throne was a rainbow shining like an emerald… From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and thunder.” Rev. 4:2-5 NIRV
“…It’s Jesus! He’s the one who is now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of his death.” Heb. 2:9 CEB
“And when he was a man, he was humble. He was even willing to die, yes, to die on a cross. That is why God has made him very great. God has given him a name above every name.” Phil. 2:8, 9 CEB
“Everyone in heaven, everyone on earth, and everyone under the earth will kneel before the name of Jesus.” Phil. 2:10 CEB
“His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns…”
Rev. 19:12 KJV
“…for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings…”
Rev. 19:12 KJV
All sorts
of crowns have been worn all over the world and throughout history.
We are tempted to “crow” about our abilities and worldly achievements. We strut about wearing our crowns.
There are also crowns that Jesus Himself will give to faithful believers.

The twenty-four leaders get down before Him and worship Him Who lives forever. They lay their crowns before Him and say, “Our Lord and our God, it is right for You to have the shining-greatness and the honor and the power. You made all things. Rev. 4:10, 11 NLV
The crowns on Jesus’s head are surely the crowns that we all lay at His feet.
With this act, we affirm that Jesus is the only true King.
Consider all the things we are proud of, who we are, what we do, and things we have accomplished and remember…
…Jesus is far better!
To save us, He traded His rightful crown for a crown of thorns.
Now, are we willing to give up our small crowns (the things we are proud about, who we are, what we do) and lay them at the feet of Jesus?
The only One truly worthy of any crown is Jesus Christ, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
