This is the jewel in my Heavenly crown

It is by sharing we inherit a beautiful crown

This is the task my master has given me

“My only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God's grace.” (Acts 20:24 New International Version)

While enjoying my morning meal of “The Breakfast of Champions” Bible reading (after all, read the treasures within. Isn’t it chocked full of champions?) this verse stood out to me. It made me feel good.

Imagine a king or emperor giving a special task, just for you.

My task is being a Christian writer and the longer I partake of my divine task, the less of a task it is. Every time an article helps someone draw closer to Christ that will be another jewel in my crown in Heaven.

Then when Christ, the Chief Shepherd, comes, you will get a glorious crown that will never lose its beauty. 1 Peter 5:4 New Century Version

Do you know why the crown will never lose its beauty?

It is because the jewels which are more precious than jade or diamonds are the people I have been blessed to help draw closer to Christ. THEY are the jewels.

We all have our calling in the heavenly family. When you do your part, you too will inherit a precious crown. Are you doing the task our master has assigned you? When you feel exhausted or dejected and want to quit, remember your crown awaiting you in Heaven. Do not believe any task is little, small or insignificant?

The truly generous is the truly wise, and he who loves not others, lives unblest.
Henry Home

When I was a teacher I planted the seeds in some of my students. I look forward to meeting them in Heaven and sharing huge hugs and tears of joy with them.

So too it is with you. The little seed you plant today may become a beautiful apple tree that produces much Heavenly fruit tomorrow.

Read about the great evangelists of yesterday like Billy Graham and Spurgeon or Billy Sunday. Some were real party boys. They heard one little sermon or had one little encounter with a Christian and they went on to set the world on fire.

You too could be the match that sets the next Billy Graham on the world.

"Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best." – William Blake

No you do not desire your crown for pride but rather joy. The joy being that you have in some way guided another to heaven. It will be joy for them not pride for you. Joseph- Anthony: Green

If you believe you only have little in the way of skills or recourses remember this: Little in the hands of Jesus can do much.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our Provider) for the wonderful privilege of having so many precious jewels in my crown. I ask my beloved that You bless me with so many more opportunities to add more jewels to this crown. As well oh cherished one, may these jewels have their own crowns to give even more glory to You. I give thanks and ask for this blessing in the name of Him who wears the most treasured crown, Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Hi Micheal.

Thank you for your beautiful praise.

God has given each of us a skill to do to fullfill His purpose. As we fullfill our purpose we will be putting another jewel in our crown.

I am reminded about the beauty of people. It is a great value to Christ when a person helps others to know Him. Wonderful inspiration and you have brought out the beauty of those gems as we serve out our purpose in life.

Hi teaches.

Thank you for your wise comments.

We should try to help others get their own crown and when we guide others to Jesus it is a tremendous joy both for them and for us.

God bless you.
