Conquer Through Love

PDF of Sermon Slides – Conquer Through Love”

Moneyball Movie Clip (one-minute sermon illustration – save to your computer and play back). Pastor Bob uses this brief exchange in the movie Moneyball to build a metaphor for the Christian life.

What does it mean that we are “more than conquerors” (Romans 8:37)? The entire chapter of Romans 8 builds and builds to the magnificent truth that through God’s love in Christ Jesus we are “hyper-overcomers.” The Apostle Paul calls us to live into this great truth and reflect the light of the Spirit of God within us. In Pastor Bob’s reflections on this powerful passage, we are reminded that Jesus did not conquer death so that we might live in fear – he calls us to “run the bases of life” fully aware that Jesus has already “hit the ball out of the park.” Through his love, we have already conquered everything life and death can throw at us.
