The Truth For Today – October 11

October 11th

Our future crown

When you have stood the test, you will receive the crown of life.

James 1:12

Eternal life is the crown that God has promised to those who love him. It is the highest reward of the believer. Although we currently experience some of the benefits of eternal life, we hold it as a promise. Someday we will receive it in its fullness. We are still looking forward to receiving the future award. When the Lord comes, he will give us the fullness of eternal life.

The apostle Paul expressed a similar thought: “For the rest, the crown of justice is in store for me, which the Lord, the just judge, will give me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who love his coming. “(2 Tim. 4: 8). When Christ returns for the church, Christians will be given a life of eternal righteousness. We will all receive the same crown of rewards of eternal life, righteousness, and glory.

Resistance does not earn eternal life. However, endurance is the test of genuine faith and love, and that is rewarded with the fullness of eternal life.
