We Shall Wear A Crown

Besides hearing these words accompanied by the melody of an Ole Gospel Hymn in the church of my childhood, wearing a crown is both biblically and theologically appropriate in our  fashioning of an understanding of God's faithfulness to His laborers. Our labor is unequivocally assured of reward.

 

But why are we often discouraged along the way? And why do we often find ourselves competing against our co-laborers instead of cheering them on? And are we in pursuit of fame or committed to being faithful?

 

The word of God lists at least five metaphorical crowns that serve as descriptions of God's just reward to his faithful laborers and the scriptures are clear that Believers in Christ will receive rewards for faithful service for the Master.

 

 

And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible (I Corinthians 9:25).

 

For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? (I Thessalonians 2:19)

 

Perhaps in our zeal to be active in God's work we should be reminded that it will not be easy. With every God given assignment comes adversity. Remember these three truths:

 

1. Wearing a crown requires a relationship of Faith. (You must know and  trust God in every situation.)

2. Wearing a crown means running in the race of Faith. (You must strip away impediments and stay focused)

3. Wearing a crown is results in recieveing the reward of Faith. (Only what you do for Christ will last)

 

It's not how you start, but how you finish! Stay in the Race...and finish!

 

Be Well
