Day Five: Conquering Love

Romans 8:32, 37 NIVHe who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

We are called “more than conquerors.” The idea is this – what was won on the cross now extends with full force, full power into all moments of our lives. That’s the power of the cross! It is the conquering love that keeps conquering. This is what salvation rescue is. It’s a bigger idea than just “going to heaven” one day, it has everything to do with here and now. Jesus conquered the silence of the grave and now as we cling to him, he is there in our times of brokenness – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday… – conquering again and again.

Today, let’s pray for God’s conquering love to come in full power to our churches and places of ministry. May the overwhelming victory that was won on the cross now be brought into every area of our lives.

Prayer: “Heavenly Father, thank you for your conquering love. May our communities experience the full power of the cross. May our small groups and those whom God has called us to love experience overwhelming victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
