This year’s school theme will be “More Than Conquerors”. This theme (also the same theme as Wisconsin Lutheran High School
) will guide our journey throughout the 2021-22 school year. The School theme is based on Romans 8:37
which reads: No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus conquered our arch-enemies of sin, death, and the power of the devil when he lived a perfect life and die on the cross for our sins. He conquered what we cannot, and he won salvation for all of us. This is the wonderful message that we will focus on this school year at Good Shepherd’s Lutheran School.
Creator of the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Leonardo da Vinci is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. To ask whether he could draw a stick man seems a silly question. Of course he could. The question, though, illustrates a logical claim sometimes known as “the argument from the greater to the lesser.”
Interestingly, this line of reasoning appears frequently in the Scriptures. Consider Romans 8:31, If God be for us, who can be against us?
If the God who created the universe, human life in his own image, and proved his unconditional love for us by sending his Son to die for our sins, who or what could overpower him? No one or no thing.
Still, we doubt at times. Despite what we know about the Triune God, we allow cares and challenges to look bigger than they are. But, in our relationship with the heavenly Father through Jesus Christ we are ... more than conquerors
(Romans 8:37), our theme for the 2021-22 school year. Romans 8:28-38 assures us that Christ’s conquests are ours and nothing can separate us from his love.
