Crown is an identity and it is for kings and conquerors. The wearing of crown is not automatic there are due processes to follow. 2 Tim 4:7. Paul declared,

“I have fought a good fight and I have finished the race.”

The race and the fight is a Christian life. There are two types of Christians; The Loser and The Winner.

The winners are those that consider this world a battle field and that can fight. What are they fighting against? They are fighting against Sin, Satan, Self, Lust and world.

In Hebrews chapter 11 verses 32-33, the men that strove for the crown through faith and obtained a good report were mentioned. God has provided us His grace, we have no excuse. Brethren, please remember that there is no partiality with God. In obtaining the crown, we cannot deceive God. He has set others as precedents for us, therefore let us run.

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before him endure the cross’ despising the shame and was set at the right hand of the father (Hebrew 12:2).

Let us endure affliction and see that they are light with God’s grace abounding in us. (1 Cor 4:17).

So strengthen your feeble hands work acceptably pray with thanksgiving and run with purpose. Our good Lord will reward us with His crown in Jesus name. Amen
