A Crown of Righteousness

‘Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge , will award to me on that day and not only to me but also to all who have longed for His appearing.’ 2 Timothy 4:8

I love the idea that ‘all who long for His appearing’ will receive this reward. I am not alone in this. Millions and millions round the world are included in His love. Knowing there is a ‘crown of righteousness’ awaiting should not stop me serving my Lord while I am here on earth.
