Word of the Day... November 10, 2012

35 Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? 36 (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” 37 No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8: 35-39

What does it mean to be more than a conqueror?  A conqueror is one who goes to war, fights a battle, and wins.  To be more than a conqueror is to go into battle having already won, going in as a victor.  And that is what we are.  Satan has already been defeated.  There is no condemnation for us and no way for us to be separated from the love of God.

Death can’t beat us, demons can’t beat us, hard times don’t threaten us, and we can’t lose because of the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  We enjoy the battle because we know the outcome.  We know that we already have won!!! 

I hope that you all take time out for Jesus today.  Spend some time talking to Him and reading His Word.  It really makes such a difference in how we face everything that comes our way when we are “in” Christ Jesus!!!  Have a wonderful day!!! God bless you all!!!
