“Continue strong in your faith so no one will take away your crown.” REVELATION 3:11
Some of you have never won a prize in your life. Oh, maybe you were quartermaster in your Boy Scout troop or in charge of sodas at the homeroom Christmas party, but that’s about it. You’ve never won much. You’ve watched the Mark McGwires of this world carry home the trophies and walk away with the ribbons. All you have are “almosts” and “what ifs.”
If that hits home, then you’ll cherish this promise: “When Christ, the Chief Shepherd, comes, you will get a glorious crown that will never lose its beauty” (1 Peter 5:4).
Your day is coming. What the world has overlooked, your Father has remembered, and sooner than you can imagine, you will be blessed by him.
