Crowned with MANY Crowns

God gives his servants a rewarded Crown according to the good use of our gifts.

There are five Crowns given. We don't know what they will look like?? so these portrayed are only a guess.

REMEMBER: None of us are perfect... BUT, as believers we are covered with the blood of Jesus.

THE CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS:

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the CROWN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7-8) 
THE IMPERISHABLE CROWN

Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an IMPERISHABLE CROWN. Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air. But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)



The Crown of Life 
 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.


The Crown of Rejoicing
"For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?" 1 Thessalonians 2:19



The Crown of Glory


SHEPHERD THE FLOCK OF GOD which is among you, serving as overseers, not by constraint but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the CROWN OF GLORY that does not fade away.” (1 Peter 5:1-4)







The Lord gives the Crowns - NOT I.  
However, those who have accepted and follow the Lord, are His Princesses and Prince's and a crown awaits them in Heaven.

On my Facebook author page, as the Lord guides, I will put a simple crown on God's princesses, as a reminder of their Heavenly reward. 

All gifts from the Father are special. Your gift may be that of Kindness, of cleaning the church, of bringing people into the Kingdom. No matter what your gift is, it is special. Be humble and be as Jesus was to others.
