Jesus’ finished work of victory secured for you the end of defeat. You are victorious in Christ over all the sorrows, losses, failures, hurts, and troubles of this world. Jesus used His final word to offer you the victory of declaring, “In Christ, I am MORE than a Conqueror!” This week, we will be talking about how the Children of God have victory in Christ.
This week’s memory verse is Romans 8:37; “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”
1. Read Romans 8:28-39 (see page 2). What do these verses tell us about the Finished Work of Jesus Christ that secures our victory?
2. Jesus did not die on the cross to merely forgive you of your sins but to unleash His power in you so that you could live the victorious life that He planned for you. What does it mean that “we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." (Romans 8:37)?
3. If all our enemies have been defeated and we are more than conquerors through Christ, why do we so often feel defeated in life? How should the victorious life Christ purchased for us affect our attitude toward areas of anxiety, uncertainty, or sin struggles?
4. Why is it important that we believe the truth that we are more than conquerors, even when we don't feel like it?
5. Living in the victory of Christ is not automatic; it’s a day‑by‑day choice we must make. What are some day‑by‑day choices we must make to live in this victory? Is it harder for you some days than others? If so, why?
6. What areas of your life threaten your belief that you are more than a conqueror in Christ?
7. I’m in it, but I’m in Christ. Either you allow Jesus Christ to determine your perspective, or you allow your circumstances to determine your perspective. How would your life and attitude change if you really believed that Christ died on the cross so that the victorious life was possible for you to live this week through Him?
8. It’s easy to say, “Can anything good come from this?” Paul was able to say that he is convinced “something good will come from this” How can you change your feed to remind yourself of this every day?
Jesus has the final word! Jesus Accomplished EVERYTHING you need to walk and live in victory, even when you are in it. There is no debating or questioning it! There is no higher authority or power; Jesus has done EVERYTHING! Consider all that we’ve explored over the past six weeks:
- I am free in Christ: “You must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus." (Romans 6:11)
- I am completely forgiven in Christ: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. (Romans 3:23-24 NIV)
- I am accepted in Christ: “You, who once were alienated from God and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him” (Colossians 1:21–22).
- I am loved as a child of God in Christ: “All who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).
- I am redeemed in Christ: "For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ" (1 Peter 1:18–19 NIV).
- I am victorious in Christ: “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37).
(Romans 8:28-39 NIV) 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
29 For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
30 And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
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.
