Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

The Crown of Life

on August 21, 2022

James 1:12-“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.”

Joyce reminisced about being crowned Miss Arizona several decades earlier, when she was just twenty years old. She smiled as she thought about the moment the crown was placed on her head. 

“It was one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve ever had. To this day, I can still feel the weight of the crown and hear the cheers of the audience.”

I can only imagine what that must have felt like, having never won such a contest myself. However, the Bible tells us that each believer will receive the crown of life. 

What a joyous occasion that will be when Jesus places it on our heads!

We will cheer for each other, remembering that His promises are true and that He keeps each and every one of them!
