“MORE THAN CONQUERORS”
If Paul was writing this letter to us today, I imagine him saying to us, “Neither fear nor panic, neither worry nor anxiety, neither world markets nor stock fluctuations, neither epidemic nor pandemic, not even the covid-19 itself, can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” No virus or pandemic can rob us of the victory Jesus gives to all who believe in him. So what difference does this message of being more than conquerors make in our lives? Let us practice Trust. I can think of two Biblical phrases to say to yourself whenever you become fearful about the future. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” And, “We are more than conquerors through him who loves us.” Brothers and sisters in Christ, let us continue to develop an active prayer life, read the Bible and meditate on it, and cultivate connections with our fellow believers. Why not read and meditate on God’s Word instead of browsing the net and looking for messages that can be false or fake that will lead us to be more anxious about the situation. Let us spend more time in prayer each day communing with our loving God.
