Do You Still Have Your Crown?


Tuesday night was the next to the last lesson in our series of Revival messages from Levi Sides. He challenged each of us present last night with the message, “Don’t Let Anybody Take Your Crown.”

He described our crown using Bible verses as:

  • Incorruptible – 1 Cor 9:24
  • Never Fading – 1 Pet 5:4
  • Indescribably beautiful – 1 Cor 2:9
  • A Prize of High Calling – Phil 3:14
  • A Rest – Heb 4:9-11
  • Eternal – 2 Cor 5:1

This Crown of Glory (1 Pet 5:4), of Righteousness (2 Tim 4:8), of Rejoicing (1 Thess 2:19), and of Life (Jas 1:12) is the symbol of a victorious king and belongs to the one who overcomes (Rev 2:10-11).

We must guard our crown against the one who would see us lose it. We must guard against the schemes of the devil. Certain Galatians (Gal 5:4) and Demas (2 Tim 4:10) are examples of some who forfeited their crown by returning to their old ways or by loving the things of this world more than the things of God. When we stand strong and endure to the end (Matt 10:22), we have the assurance of that Glorious Crown.
