We Are More Than Conquerors
WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or
famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
As it is written: 'For your sake we face death
all day long; we are considered as sheep to be
No in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present
nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor
depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able
to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ
Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8: 35-39
This is one of the most powerful and awesome promise of the Lord in the Bible. If we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and savior, and if we surrender our lives to Him, then no power in the whole universe could ever separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. We are therefore more than conquerors through Christ who loves us so much that He died on the cross for us. As He has conquered sin, disease and death and all the curses of Satan through His death on the cross and His triumphant resurrection, we can avail of the full power of the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to overcome the devil and all his wiles. Thus we shall be able to conquer all the obstacles and temptations thrown our way by the devil through that everlasting promise of our Lord that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
