1 Peter 5:4 WEB
When the chief Shepherd is revealed,
you will receive the crown of glory that doesnâ€™t fade away.
Promise #29: When Jesus appears, you will receive a crown of glory that will never dim.
You may ask the question... why will we receive a crown of glory? The simple answer is that since we are part of God's royal family, we all get to wear a crown of glory. Romans 8:16-17 says.... 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.

All those who have called upon the name of the Lord throughout the centuries can hold on to this promise. When Jesus appears, each and every one of us will receive a crown of glory that will never fade away. Not because we have done anything in our own effort to earn or deserve it. The crown that we receive does not come from our self-effort but because of God's grace and goodness.
Just because God loves us, He decided that we could share in the eternal riches of His Son, Jesus Christ and be born into His amazing royal family. On that great day when we will see Jesus face to face, we will receive our own crown of glory, signifying to all of heaven that we belong to God, and are called to rule and reign with Jesus in His royal family forever.
May today's promise encourage your heart and give you hope for the glorious future that is in store for you.
