The crown of Righteousness is a crown given us by the Lord after the good fight of faith, it is a great reward for following the one who died for to make us free! (2 Timothy 4:7-8). I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
For anyone who gains the wisdom of God and gets true understanding of its meaning will get a crown of glory. (Proverbs 4:5-9)….. (Proverbs 16:31).
There are so many temptations in this world, but just as Jesus was tempted with many things we too do the same by His power and grace given us and by doing so will receive the crown of life! (James 1:12-16). Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren.
At the crucifixion of Christ the platted crown of thorns He suffered can never be fathomed by any one of us, yet it was out of love He died and endured the cross to allow us to gain salvation and freedom from sin. (Matthew 27:27-31). Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers. And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head. And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
