A man came across a boys’ little league baseball game and went over to the dugout and asked one of the boys sitting there what the score was. He replied, “We’re behind 18-0”.

A conqueror is always associated with being a champion, a winner or a ruler. Anyone can be a conqueror. But what does it take to be "more than a conqueror".

First. and what our eternal purpose is. hardship. if God is for us. we are more than conquerors. Our pain in our suffering is very real. nakedness.
