“Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” James 1:12 NKJV The crown of life is like the trophy given to winning athletes. God’s crown of life is not glory and honour here on earth but the reward of eternal life, a life with Him forever. “And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.” I Cor. 9:25 NKJV The way to be in God’s winning circle is by loving Him and staying faithful even under pressure.
