THIRTY ONE DAYS OF BIBLE TRUTHS - DAY 13 (SHOCK AND AWE)
BIBLE VERSE: Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37)
TRUTH: When we think of conquerors, the first image that comes to mind are the great warriors and figures in history like Genghis Khan; Alexander the Great or even Napoleon – all men who have nothing in common with Holy God of the Universe. We can think of Columbus who conquered the oceans (and was a Christian believe it or not) or some of our astronauts who conquered space. Yet none compares to the One Who conquered sin – not be because He was a sinner but because He wanted to take our burden and then impute that Victory unto us, that we may have victorious living. This is the Love of which Romans 8:37 speaks. If we really comprehend what the word “conqueror” really means, we would fall down on our faces right now and thank Jesus for His sacrifice! In the original language, the praise “more than conquerors” literally means we have dominant and overwhelming victory! Victory over what, you ask? We have victory over sin, death and hell. #CELEBRATE!
