MORE THAN CONQUERORS



Now this is where it’s at!!  Talk about a great promise of God!!  “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?”  God gave his son to die for us!!  If we know and believe that, then how can we not believe that will give us all things through the son who died for us.  If he he came in the flesh to die for us, then who indeed can stand against us!!  Do we not then believe that we can come to him with all our hurts, our habits, our hang ups, all our fears, our anxieties, our worries??   Do we believe he came to die for us to leave us to wallow in our own pity parties, feeling sorry for ourselves, worrying about what people might think or say about us??!!  “Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.”  No, the son who died for us is still living for us!!  See that – he’s at the right hand of the Father, intervening on our behalf.  We have the one who came as God in the flesh to us, who chose to take unto himself the sins of the world, who was able to overcome the powers of sin and death, working for us with the Father to give us all we need to overcome any any obstacle we might have, or think we have.  And it says right here – “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?”    Nothing can separate us from the love of Jesus Christ!!  
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Amen!! We are More than Conquerors through Christ Jesus!!  We can conquer any Giant, any habit, any addiction, any hurt with the love of Christ on our side!!  And there is nothing that can separate us from that love!!  Jesus Christ loves you – and there’s nothing you can do about it!!

 



“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
