More Than Conquerors
Outline By: Brian A. Yeager
A. Many Christians have regrettable pasts (I Corinthians 6:9-11).
1. In Christ you become a new person (II Corinthians 5:17).
2. Real conversion means all of your sins are gone (Romans 6:1-6 and Colossians 1:12-14).
3. That doesnŐt always mean itŐs easy to forget or forgive yourself for what youŐve done wrong or not done right in the past (Ephesians 3:8).
B. Many Christians also have present challenges (II Corinthians 4:8-10).
1. Changed relationships (I Peter 4:1-5).
2. Temptations to be avoided (Mark 14:38).
3. Not allowing the past to hinder us (Philippians 3:8-14).
4. Plainly, Christianity is challenging on several fronts (Acts 14:22).
II. Body: We CanŐt Just ŇGet ByÓ When WeŐre More Than Conquerors (Romans 8:31-38).
A. Think about the confidence ŇGod be for usÓ should bring (Hebrews 13:5-6).
1. WhatŐs to lose when youŐre on His side (I John 4:4)?
2. He is our Father (I John 3:1-3) and that is beneficial (Romans 8:17).
B. GodŐs effort to exalt us to more than conquerors was great (Romans 5:8-10).
1. This proves His love for you/me (I John 4:6-10).
2. Our task is to keep ourselves in His love (Jude 1:21).
C. No rightful charge can be laid against a faithful Christian because you are perfect (Hebrews 12:22-23).
1. Again, this price was heavy for God (Romans 3:24-26).
2. Being justified, made just, makes you more than a conqueror (Titus 3:7).
3. Consider what being justified should also bring in this life for us (Romans 5:1).
D. You are more than a conqueror because NOTHING can separate you from God (John 10:27-29).
1. This doesnŐt mean you cannot fall away (Galatians 5:4).
2. To be clear, you still have a part (Romans 1:17).
III. Conclusion: I Corinthians 15:57
