LOC FAF Victorious Love

While looking through an old Hymnal, I was inspired by the title of this hymn - Victory, Great Victory.  While I have never actually heard the Hymn I certainly love the title and as a Christian, it is a topic that is close to our hearts.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:35-37


This scripture is specific telling us that we have been made MORE THAN CONQUERORS - in all of the trials listed, not just in one or two situations but in any and every situation we face.


The cause of our victory is specific - through the blood of Jesus Christ.  Christ's death on the cross brings us victory, it is not due to anything on our part but the shedding of the blood of Jesus.  There is more power in one drop of His blood than any weapon that the 'world' has created.  All the riches in the world not be enough to purchase one drop of the blood that was shed for our salvation. 
Today, when we are acutely aware of the power sources available to mankind and the blatant displays of them, we can find peace in the knowledge that
indeed...
in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Romans 8:37



For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometheven our faith
1John 5:4
AMEN!!
