For some time, I have wanted to start a weekly devotional blog. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love God and love people. I constantly strive to encourage others throughout my every day life. This is just how I’m wired. So why blog? I was driving over the summer down a country road, listening to my local Christian radio station, when suddenly I felt as if God was revealing so many things to me, and it was all at once. Thought after thought after thought. Somehow, He allowed me to grasp in some way what He was saying to me. I decided I wanted to write this down and encourage others, so the idea of a blog came to mind. For quite a while, I have found excuses to put it off, but now I decided to start blogging.
My goal is this: Every week, I will post about a topic that the Lord has been showing me recently. My hope is that through the use of blogging and social media, I might be able to encourage others to build a stronger relationship with Christ.
One huge aspect of creating a blog is having a name. I thought and thought about this, and after some thought I decided to go with “More Than Conquerors.” I went with this title to reflect upon my favorite verses in scripture. The title of the section is “More Than Conquerors,” so I found the title quite fitting!
More Than Conquerors
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He 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? 33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I get excited as a follower of Christ every time I read this. Always remember, you are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus our Lord!
The first blog post will be posted tomorrow!
