Title: The crown of life
Text verse: James 1: 12
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.
We summon up all our willpower in order to attain salvation.
- In order to attain salvation, we must believe. The proper kind of faith develops willpower.
- The image of the crown also applies to those who are accepted at the return of Jesus and who will be enveloped by His glory.
- The power that Jesus Christ will exercise in the kingdom of peace on earth will not be of an earthly nature, but rather of a spiritual nature. The gospel will be proclaimed both here and in the beyond.
