Proper 12


As Christians we are called and intended for lives of peace, confidence, and victory. This passage provides numerous reasons that this is the case. As believers we are “more than conquerors” because . . . :

  • The Spirit intercedes for us to a depth that words cannot express (v. 26)
  • God causes all things to work together for our good (v. 28)
  • We are predestined to experience God’s glory (v. 29)
  • God the Father sacrificed his own Son out of his love for us (v. 32)
  • Christ Himself intercedes for us at the Father’s right hand (v. 34)
  • Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ (v. 36) or the love of God (v. 39)

This is a call for us to put away doubt, fear, anxiety, and double-mindedness. Let us give ourselves completely today to the love of God which has proclaimed that we will indeed be more than conquerors.
