The Power of Love

Today's Verse:

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. ~Romans 8:37

 

Do you consider yourself successful when it comes to the Christian life? Do you experience the reality of taking one step forward and then two steps backward? Do you have victories that sometimes are overshadowed by trials? If we are sincere and truthful, we know that living the Christian life can be a daunting practice. While there are victories and successes that we do have, we also encounter setbacks, difficulties, and discouragement. Our devotion this morning reminds us that we have a built-in success for Christian living. This built-in success is found in the unchangeable fact that we are more than conquerors in life through the love of Jesus Christ.  

 

We are more than conquerors in our salvation.

We do not have a salvation that is a "hope so" salvation: it is a salvation that is a "know so" salvation! “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” We are completely saved through the efficacious sacrifice of Christ for all of our sins. We have been given an inheritance that is incorruptible, undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in Heaven for us. God holds us in His hand, and no man can take us out of it. The devil can whisper doubts, but Jesus proclaims our freedom.

 

We are more than conquerors in our status.

The moment we are saved, we become sons of God through spiritual adoption. As sons of God, we are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus. We have the privilege of approaching God like how a little child approaches his earthly father. We can cry out, "Abba, Father," which is a term of endearment. The indwelling of the Spirit gives us the assurance of this wonderful status as sons.

 

We are more than conquerors when we suffer.

Suffering is a reality in the Christian life. We suffer grief, hurt, loss, separation, and rejection. Suffering can take its toll on us as we consider the sleepless nights, anxious concerns, and restless spirit that we experience. In spite of the suffering, we can look ahead to when the suffering will be over. We can look above when our suffering is sustained by His grace. We can look beyond and know that all things work together for good to them that love God.

 

We are more than conquerors through our supplications.

I am thankful that God gave us the privilege of prayer. Through prayer, we can pour out our soul and heart to God. Through prayer, our faith is strengthened. Through prayer, we draw closer to God. Through prayer, we see God at work in our life. We experience God’s willingness to do for us what we cannot do. We see the impossible become possible. Through prayer, we see God’s power afresh and anew in our weak and helpless state.

 

We are more than conquerors in our sojourn.

Paul tells us that we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. There is no power, problem, predicament, or peril that can separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. As we walk this pilgrim life, God gives us the confidence and faith to go on because of His love which is inseparable. Nothing can separate us from the love of God. He loves us with an everlasting love!

 

This morning, awaken to the fact that we are more than conquerors through Christ’s love! The key to our success is abiding in His love.

 

Have an unconquerable God Morning!
