Jesus clearly teaches this principle in such places as Matthew chapter 25 and in Luke chapter In 1 Corinthians Paul deals with the issue of eternal rewards. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life (Revelation ). The crown mentioned in Revelation is also the crown of life mentioned in James In both cases, the crown of life is a special honor, reward, or recognition given by Jesus to those who stand up against the temptation and trials of the devil.
