other day I was reading in the eighth Psalm and verse 5, where king David wrote
about man, that God has: “crowned him with glory and honour” (KJV). Well none
of us are earthly kings or queens so it’s nice to think that we can still wear
a crown. However, I got thinking about CROWNS and realized that the Bible
actually contains a lot of verses about crowns.
Solomon taught about wisdom that she will give us a: “crown of glory” (Prov 4:9).
In Psalms it is recorded that the Lord: “crowneth the with lovingkindness and
tender mercies” (Ps 103:4). Wow, crowns of glory, honor, beauty, loving
kindness and tender mercies.
take a look in the new Testament. If we love God and stand up under tests, trials
and temptations we will receive: “the crown of life” (James 1:12). The apostle
Peter, in addressing leaders in the church, promised them an eternal reward: “the
crown of glory that will not fade away” (1 Peter 5:4). God has saved a crown of
righteousness for Paul and all of us as Christians that we will receive at the
second coming of Jesus or when we meet him at our physical death (2 Tim 4:8). If
we live for Christ and endure the pressures and sufferings of this life, we will
reign with Jesus in the life to come (2 Timothy 2:12).
God. I don’t know about you but that sounds better to me than having a worldly king
or queen’s crown.
