We Are More Than Conquerors
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. (Romans 8:37)
What does it look like when you are “more than a conqueror”?
Picture the boxer who wins the world championship and takes home a ten-million dollar prize. He’s battered and bruised, but he is the champion. He is an example of a conqueror.
Now when he comes home after the bout, he hands the check to his wife. She’s the one who is more than a conqueror. She didn’t do anything to earn it, but she received all of the benefit.
That’s what we are in Jesus. We didn’t do anything to earn the blessing of God, but Christ made it possible for us to experience it. The only prerequisite for us is that we are to hear the Word, believe that it is true, and base our life upon it.
