Bob's Brief Bible Notes

Why Be Stedfast1 Laborers2

One Perspective

I. The Christian strives toward Christ-likeness. (See 1 Peter 2:21; Philippians 3:14; Romans 12:1-2).

II. We take nothing material with when we leave this old world. (Job 1:21). All we will have in Heaven are the spiritual crowns we have won or earned through our service.

III. Spiritual Crowns:

  1. Incorruptible Crown. 1 Corinthians 9:25
  2. Crown of Righteousness. 2 Timothy 4:8
  3. Crown of Life. James 1:12
  4. Crown of Glory. 1 Peter 5:4
  5. The Crowns are to be guarded. Revelation 3:11

IV. The crowns which we possess will be all we will have to cast at the feet of Jesus, the Dear Lamb of God Who made it all possible! (See Revelation 4:10). Then we will join in the Heaven-wide Song of Praise, "Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and honor, and blessing! Blessing, and honor, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever! Amen! (Revelation 5:11-14).

V. Let's get with it! (See John 9:4).


1 1 Corinthians 15:58.

2 1 Corinthians 3:9.
