“God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands” (Acts 17:24).
While all three persons of the Trinity participated in creation (for their person and purpose is unified), the primary agent was God the Son. “All things were created by Him, and for Him” (Colossians 1:16). The final verse of “Crown Him with Many Crowns” reflects this unity while focusing on the implementing work of Christ.
Crown Him the Lord of heav’n; One with the Father known,
One with the Spirit through Him giv’n From yonder glorious throne.
To thee be endless praise, For thou for us hast died;
Be thou, O Lord, through endless days Adored and magnified.
Jesus prayed “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth” (Matthew 11:25), but then He ascended “up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God” (Mark 16:19). Throughout His earthly ministry He taught “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30).
He also promised His disciples that the Holy Spirit, “the Comforter [would] come, whom I will send unto you from the Father” (John 15:26). Paul added that the Spirit would take up residence in the Christian. “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God?” (I Corinthians 6:19).
Our response to all that our Lord has done for us should be to worship Him-to adore and magnify Him-for all eternity. We will join the “four and twenty elders [and] fall down before Him that [sits] on the throne, and worship Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast [our] crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord” (Revelation 4:10,11).
