ODAAT – More than conquerors

Romans 8:37

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Who on this earth has ever conquered death? Who on earth has ever overcome the grave? Who on this earth has ever been able to withstand the evil one? Who on earth has been able to hold the gift of eternal life in their hands and to offer it to all who would want it?

Well, to all of these questions, we can say that there is no one on this earth who has been able to do any of these things except Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour – the perfect man in the eyes of God, without sin, and who gave His life for all of mankind. But not only did He lay His life down, but He took it up again and rose from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.

But this is not the end of the story. Rather, how amazing is it that if we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, the very spirit of Christ comes to abide in us and us in Him. We too are now risen with Christ and, in and through Him, are seated in heavenly places, right at the throne of Grace and Mercy; death no longer has a hold on us; we are now a new creation and have been lovingly afforded eternal life, and all at the cost of Jesus laying down His own life.

So if God has graciously allowed us to be seated at the Father’s right hand in and through Jesus, if we have been made kings and priests through our Saviour, let us then be more than conquerors in this life we have been ordained to live on earth: a life which should bring forth much fruit to the glory of God.

Let us never forget that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us and who has won the victory on our behalf. Today, don’t cower or crumble under your circumstance, trial or tribulation. Simply set your heart and mind on those things which are above and know this one thing, that which is not possible with man, is possible with God.

Additional scriptures for reading:
Colossians 3:1-3
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Ephesians 6:10
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Matthew 16:18 
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Philippians 4:13 
13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Colossians 2:10
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

2 Corinthians 5:20
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Colossians 1:11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

2 Timothy 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1 Corinthians 15:55 
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
