For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. (1 Corinthians 3:11-13)
Lots of people would like to know what kind of crowns they will receive when they get to glory. Well, the Lord will take everything that could not be burned by the fire and make your personal crowns. So, everybody is forming their own crowns.
We need to be careful and not be all wood, hay or stubble. There must be something left for the crowns. Among other crowns, there is a "crown of glory that does not fade away." (1 Peter 5:4) Be sure that yours fits perfectly. Praise the Lord!
