1 Peter 5:4 (NIV) ~ And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.

1 Peter 5:4 (NIV) ~ And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away. 

The Bible talks about several different crowns: the crown of joy, the crown of beauty, the crown of righteousness, the crown of glory and the crown of life. There is also this beautiful verse from Proverbs 12:4 (NIV), A wife of noble character is her husband’s crown.” This begs the question, what kind of crown are you wearing? 

Jesus wore a crown of thorns, to break the curse of the law, so you could wear the glory of His glory. However, some people can only picture themselves wearing a waste paper basket on their head for a crown, because they see themselves as worthless; as just trash. Their belief that God wants to crown them with his glory has been battered, and they feel low, and inadequate. However, when God looks at you He sees someone so amazing, so beautiful; someone who is worthy and blessed by Him. Pause for a moment and let this verse of Scripture speak to your heart today from Isaiah 62:3 (Darby Translation), “…and thou shalt be a crown of beauty in the hand of Jehovah, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.” 

Today, let God bestow upon you a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of morning and the garment of praise for the spirit of despair.

My friend, take off the paper basket crown of the world and be crowned with his crown of beauty for your life. And when you enter heaven, enter it with joy, for it will be your coronation day and you will be crowned with the crown of Life. 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
