I still think the best example I’ve seen for being “more than a conqueror” was in the moments after a boxing match. The man had fought 8 rounds before knocking his opponent to the ground, securing the victory. The boxer was tired, sweaty, and bloody, but he was victorious! That’s when his wife got into the ring, dressed to the nines, grabbed the check, and held it in the air. She hadn’t fought for that check but she had relationship with the one that had won it all. That’s what being more than a conqueror looks like to me! I know that I didn’t do anything to earn eternal life, grace, mercy, healing, joy, or peace, but I have a relationship with Jesus – and He won all of that and so much more for me!
It’s not because of what we’ve done, it’s because of what He’s done.
Maybe you need to be reminded today of who you belong to. You are a child of God! He is victorious in every situation and every circumstance. You, my friend, are His. And because you are His, you are more than a conqueror in Him!!
Lord Jesus, thank you for winning the victory for me. Thank you that you have made me a child of God! Thank you that I am more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ my Lord and my Savior! In Jesus name, Amen.
