Introduction: Jesus wore a crown of thorns that we may receive five crowns of rewards. We owe Him more than we will ever realize. What price can one put on their soul or what would you pay for your redemption? Life is like a vapor when compared to eternity. There is pleasure in sin, but at what cost?
