And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that
will never fade away. (1 Peter 5:4)
The Good Shepherd (John 10:11), The Great Shepherd (Hebrews 13:20), The Shepherd of
our Souls (1 Peter 2:25) & the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:4) are all one and the same-
Peter the Apostle, says that the Chief Shepherd is going to appear and when that happens
he's going to give those who have lived faithful to him, a crown of glory that will never
fade away. Earthly crowns are temporary and those who wear them rejoice for a while
wearing them, but those who receive the crown of glory will rejoice forever because that is
one of the rewards that the Lord has kept for them.
The Bible says,
For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to
springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." (Revelation
How wonderful that Jesus will wipe away all traces of every sorrowful experience that the
faithful endured while they lived on earth.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying
or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said,
"Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." (Revelation 21:4, 5)
Yes, the Chief Shepherd is coming back soon. He's making everything new. Are you ready
to meet him? Are you ready to wear the crown of glory? Do not let Satan cheat you as he
cheated Adam & Eve. Be prepared to meet your Chief Shepherd. He will give you the
crown of glory.
