“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up 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 loved His appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:7,8)Paul has no doubt that he’ll receive this crown. Who else receives it? “All who have loved His appearing.” So does the award have anything to do with our good works? Our own righteousness?
