Christ’s love conquered death, and because of His love, we are more than conquerors.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:35-37.

romans_8-37
More than conquerors, hupernikao; Strong’s #5245. A combination of huper, “over and above,” and nikao, “to conquer.” The word describes one who is super victorious, who wins more than an ordinary victory, but who is overpowering in achieving abundant victory.
This is not the language of conceit, but of confidence. Jesus Christ’s love has conquered death, and because of His love, we are more than hupernikao.
These verses are strong encouragement for any Christian who is discouraged. This powerful passage gives assurance of Jesus present love, active at every moment in a Christian’s life.
Are there any causes of discouragement greater than those Paul describes? And if not, then we are never in this life separated from Jesus’ love. Even in hardships we can be more than conquerors.
