How can you be more than a conqueror? You're either a conqueror or you're a loser, right? Wrong! We were on our way to Festival of Life Kensington when my husband began to play some preaching like he always does. We were listening to Brother R.W. Schambach when the revelation of "more than a conqueror" hit me.
He began to tell the story of two boxers.
The payout for the fight was massive and the winner would take a hefty check home. Round after round, punch after punch, the boxers were broken, bloody and bruised. The man who won the fight brought the check home with stitches under his eyes and a smile that would light up a whole room, a conqueror indeed. As soon as he entered the door his wife met him there and snagged that check right from his hands! They celebrated the victory but one of them was more than a conqueror. The wife holding the check, with her perfectly done makeup and hair, not one stitch or bruise on her body was the one who was MORE THAN A CONQUEROR.
She didn't have to get into that ring and take a beating, she simply received what belonged to her. That's exactly what Jesus did for you and I. He took a beating on His body so that we would be free from the burden of sin and everything that comes along with it. Everything that comes to steal, kill or destroy has already been conquered by Jesus. All we have to do is receive it.
It's that easy!
There's no need to battle with anything. Depression, fear, cancer, defeat, they've all been conquered by Jesus. Take what belongs to you RIGHT NOW! In Jesus name!
