More Than Conquerors!

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Romans 8:37

In a way it would be wonderful enough, when facing a particularly difficult struggle to read that through Christ you are a conqueror; but Romans 8:37 tells us that we are more than conquerors!

Whatever comes against you today, isn’t it good to know that you can rest in this knowledge?

Christ-Confidence, not Self Confidence!

The phrase “more than conquerors” in this verse comes from the Greek words nikao, meaning ‘to overcome’, or ‘to conquer’, and huper, meaning ‘beyond,’ ‘over and above,’ or ‘to prevail completely over’.

In joining these two words huper and nikao together, Paul makes an incredible power-statement about us, as followers of Jesus.

Jesus triumphed over sin, death, sickness and hell; leaving not one enemy unsubdued or undefeated. It’s only because of his absolute victory that we, as his disciples “prevail completely.” The fight has already been won! Romans 8:37 is not about self-confidence. Paul reminds us that we are ‘Christ -confident.’

To put it another way: Through Jesus Christ, together with Him, you are a paramount victor, a phenomenal overcomer and a conquering force to be reckoned with!

And because you are Christ-Confident, you can rest assured that if and when some or all of the things listed in Romans 8:35,38,39 may happen in your life, there’s absolutely nothing that can separate you from God’s great love; not angels, not demons, not your fears for today or your worries about tomorrow. You are more than a conqueror.
