As we continue on with our study of The Crowns of Heaven, we come to the “Crown of Life”! Let’s go over to the book of James and read chapter 1 verse 12.
12 God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him.
Who receives the Crown of Life?
The Crown of Life is for those who’ve suffered through sickness, abuse, martyrdom, and stayed faithful to the word of God. There are countless people in the bible we can look to for examples of suffering, but look at your own life. What have you endured? What tests have you withstood, and yet stayed faithful to the word of God? Maybe you have been through many years of sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, mental abuse, or even sickness in your body for countless years.
And yet through it all, you stayed the course, so please know that God will be faithful to keep His promise to you. Just know that you have not suffered in vain, and your eternal prize the Crown of Life awaits you in Heaven.
