The Crown of Glory is discussed in 1 Peter 5:4 and is granted to Christian clergy, who “shepherd the flock in unselfish love being a good example to others” 1 Peter 5:2-4.


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.

In addition to being a symbol for literal kingship and for God’s favor, crowns serve as an image of the eternal rewards for those who serve as God’s favor, crowns serve as an image of the eternal rewards for those who serve as God’s ambassadors. Paul spoke of his congregations as his crowns (Philp 4:1; 1 Thess 2:19)

Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven. For that is how they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

The Crown of Life is referred to in James 1:12 and Revelation 2:10; it is bestowed upon “those who persevere under trials.” Jesus references this crown when he tells the Church in Smyrna to “not be afraid of what you are about to suffer… Be faithful even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

Your crown? Will you be crowned?
