“COME ON UP”
So by faith we see Christ in the garments of our outer tragedies and maltreatments, and stand on OUR Everest summit as “conquerors.” And more than standing as “conquerors,” Paul says we stand as “MORE than conquerors” (8:37). We have the extra — “the cups running over” — to help others climb their summits, when our own inner conquests are complete.
To all toiling climbers, we call out, “Come on up. Drop your heavy equipment.” We invite them to step out by faith right where they are now, and they will find by a miracle, grace leap that they are already on the Summit. Christ has already carried them there in His own crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension two thousand years ago. And the Spirit, Who came at Pentecost, will cause them to know their eternal inseparable love-union with the Father and Christ living in them as them — MORE THAN CONQUERORS!
