A crown symbolizes one who reigns in royalty. Jesus gives
His Word that He will give the crown of life to those who
sacrifice, show faithfulness to Him, and endure the conflict
and persecution of this world. He will place that crown on
the head of the overcomer and nothing will be able to remove
it. The overcomer will rule and reign with Christ for eternity.
Heavenly Father, we know we cannot be faithful to You in
this life. But we know we can succeed if we allow the Holy
Spirit to rule and reign in our lives. Please help us to do just
that, in Jesus' name we pray.
Read Revelation 2:10
"Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you,
the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you
will suffer persecution for then days. Be faithful, even to
the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life."
"Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold,
the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be
tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou
faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."
