Listen to “We Shall Wear a Crown.”October 22,2014
The Lord is going to give you a crown of righteousness. You might say what have I done to receive the crown of righteousness? Well, actually, you have not done anything. You simply believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible says, “He that knew no sin was made to be sin for us, that we would be made the righteousness of God in him.” Jesus is all our righteousness. He is the one that gives you righteousness. And he will also give you a crown of righteousness.
The apostle Paul said, I fought a good fight, I finished my course, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, that the Lord God will give to me at that day and not only to me, but to all of those who love his appearing. So you can stand and wait and believe the Lord for your crown of righteousness.
And when you receive the crown of righteousness, do you know what you will do when you get to heaven? The Bible says you will throw your crown before the Lord Jesus Christ and at his feet. What a joy that will be. You will be able to throw your crown at the feet of the Lord. This is the way you will give him glory and honor and praise. Because he loves you, you will be able to cast your crown at his feet.
There’s an old song that says, we shall wear a robe and crown. And we truly will. The book of Revelation talks about robes of white and crowns of glory. We will be with Jesus forever and forever. so don’t forget, you’ve got a crown of righteousness waiting for you in glory all because of what Jesus has done for you.
