Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. Romans 8:37
I’ve often wondered what exactly is meant by more than conquerors. I know that a conqueror is someone who defeats someone else. I’ve heard that being more than a conqueror is kind of like a blowout in a sports game. I think it is a lot more than that. I think being more than a conqueror means we’ve already won before we even start. It means that the battles we go through will only make us stronger, not weaker. When persecution, famine, nakedness, peril, or sword come our way, we need not worry, for God is for us. He will freely give us all things. No charges can be held to our account since he has justified us. No one can condemn us, for Christ has already died for us and now intercedes for us. We are not only on the winning side. We are on the side of the one who is all powerful.
