Expect God…to Make You More Than a Conqueror!

 

Introduction

    Romans 8:35-39    
        35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or     famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day     long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than     conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels     nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor     anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our     Lord.

Two Great Truths:
Because Jesus lives, When YOU Live in Him…

I.     Nothing will be able to separate you from the love of God!

    Romans 8:35-36
        35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or     famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day     long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”


    Romans 8:38-39
        38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels     nor demons, neither the present     nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor     anything else in all creation, will be     able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our     Lord.

Death:
The Greatest of all Separators

    Hebrews 2:14-15
        14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he     might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those     who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.


    2 Timothy 1:9-10
        9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because     of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10     but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed     death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

You can say:
If death can’t separate me from the love of God, nothing can!


II.    You are more than a conqueror through Christ who loves you!

    Romans 8:37
        No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

“More Than Conquerors”
Huper-Nikomen


How can we be “more than conquerors?
Because our victories are eternal!

    1 Corinthians 15:54-58
        54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality,     then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” 55 “Where,     O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of     sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58     Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves     fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
