We Must Wear Our Crown of Thorns To Receive The Crown of Glory!

“This things I have spoken to you,
that in Me, you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation;
but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
(John 16:33)

This life is a patchwork
of thorns
the people God has placed
are the thorns all around
but the thorns are not to be feared
for God has placed them,
as a diadem upon our heads
He has pressed them deep
to remind us we do not belong
to this world,
The Thorns Our Lord has fastened
and placed upon our heads
the sufferings for The Kingdom
the bruisings and the crushings our souls
to open not our mouths,
to not cry out to the Injustices
we wear a Crown of Thorns
to imitate our Lord
it is a Patience for the world
A Kindness, and a Peace
we keep
It is a Love we show
though we may be beaten with stripes
and indignity
It is a Crown God has placed
to share in the Glory of Christ
as we share in His Sufferings
The Thorns remind that we are His.
not what is passing
The Thorns keep us in Prayer
The Thorns Testify to a Lord
whose Strength we wear
Placed on our brows
Squeezing this life from us
The blood we lose is pride
The cuts and the scrapings
over our skulls
are temporary
for a Glory Greater
will remove the Thorns
As we share in His Life
the Crown of Thorns
loses its Sting
When death is a Joy
we see in the distance
God places The Crown of Life
upon our heads,
The Thorns are The Path
To Glory,
a Path no one wants
The Path that is Narrow
The Path of Ridicule
and Scorn
The Path of Crucifixion
Where Jesus is Waiting
Where Jesus Waits on The Road

We Must Wear Our Crown of Thorns To Receive The Crown of Glory! by 

Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when the Glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for The Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified."
(1 Peter 4:12-16)

    Inspiration and truth revealed is to share your own faith for the benefit of another. It then matters little to the reproach we might receive… for the cause that motivates us is greater than the world’s shame that would be cast on us. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world. Thanks for sharing this Matty, and I wish you all (all in your family) a Merry Christmas (2011).

  • Russell, thank-you for your friendship. Thank-you for the feature~Jesus comes through in the darkest of nights, and I want the world to know that even when it seems the darkness will consume, Jesus is The Blinding Righteous Light~My faith is small, but He is not.~I am small and inconsequential, the older I get the more I realize this is true~The world lies to us, it cannot tell the truth, for it knows not the Truth, as Pontius Pilate asked long ago, “What is Truth?” Truth is not a fact, Truth is a Person, it is encompassed in Jesus Christ, His Word, His Father, The Holy Spirit, and there is nothing left.

    wow, I love this! “the blood we lose is pride” – so true. And so true that we need to remember that God allows thorns so that we can have the mind and the strength and the patience of Christ… Great job!

  • Thank-you so much, Kayla. May our Christ bless you in the Coming New Year! We live in the Mercy of Jesus. In the Hope of His Work on the Cross. We are forgiven, by the Blood of Calvary, and i am so awed by His Humility!
