Crowns in Scripture
The following are some scriptures that give you a glimpse of crowns our Lord blesses you with. May we bless our Lord by laying such precious crowns at our Lord’s feet.

This is one crown you should NOT aspire to attain.
Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:” Isaiah 28:1&3
Conversation on Crowns
The precious opportunity I have, being involved in ministry, is when folks turn around and share what God puts in their own heart. Here is a meditation on crowns. I pray your heart is blessed.

Long story, but was reading in Isaiah 28. I came across vs 5, in conjunction with the other verses. I got to thinking how we can get drunk with the wine of the world like Ephraim, and how our vision and judgment get off.
Then I started thinking about crowns and what they look like. I looked at some pictures of Queen Elizabeth’s crowns. I thought, how one day the Lord will be our crown. I prayed and thought..I will probably never wear a crown here, but one day the Lord will be my crown. We will receive crowns for service, which we will lay down at His feet.
And then, I got to thinking about how some rulers through centuries have done well with their post and faithfully served their people. Those that do, it’s a hard job and they deserve the pay they get.
But many got their eyes off track because they got drunk with the wine of the world. Their vision and judgment were deterred. Then I was thinking…how it would be fun to wear a crown but how much responsibility comes with that.
It is true what my dear friend said above, what a privilege to cast crowns at Jesus feet. But also, what an awesome responsibility comes with it. May your faith and trust in your Creator fill you with awe this day as you ponder the above text message.
A Sermon on “Two Crowns”
The following sermon will identify and challenge you in the two basic crowns that you strive for in this life.
This hymn Crown Him with Many Crowns is my son’s favorite. Today I want to dedicate this song and this post to Jonathan Adam Moore on his born-again birthday
He is a young man whose desire is to serve God with his life and he is truly a blessing to the heart of his dad, mama, siblings and those who have had a part in shaping him for the glory of God. He is leading the way with a vision, for his siblings and others, to lay crowns at our Lord’s feet for the glory of God.
Happy Second Birth, in Christ Jesus, Jonathan
