Let’s Go Out and Change the World!
by Joel Renner
We are more than conquerors! How do we know this? Because Romans 8:37 (NIV) tells us:
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
These are not just nice words that the apostle Paul wrote; they are Holy Spirit-ordained words that are the truth, and we need to embrace them. We are more than conquerors, not because we’re good people, but “through Him who loved us.” Jesus living inside us — what He did in His death and resurrection for you and me — puts us in this “conquerors” position.
Jesus said in John 14:12 (BSB):
Truly, truly, I tell you, whoever believes in Me will also do the works that I am doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
This is amazing! Jesus was and is a world changer, and He expects us to do great things as well. I believe we can all do great things to change our world.
Almost every day, my dad asks me, “What are you going to do today?” And I usually respond, “Change the world and make it a better place.” And he always says, “Amen.”
When my brother, Paul, asks me what I’m doing, I respond the same way: “Change the world and make it a better place.” He then asks, “How will you do it today?” And I reply, “One person at a time.”
I truly believe that if we can touch just one person every day, there will be a compounding effect that can change the world around us. So let’s choose to believe Romans 8:37 — we are more than conquerors! And then let’s do what Jesus said in John 14:12: Believe in Him and do “the greater works.”
People need to hear this message that they are more than conquerors, capable of doing the works of Jesus in the earth today. We at RENNER Ministries are taking the Gospel both to our nearby world and to the ends of the earth so every man, woman, and child has the opportunity to hear this Good News and teaching they can trust. If you are not a financial partner yet, please pray about becoming one. Together, we can multiply the Gospel message around the world!
