"More than a conqueror"! 
Simply put, everything we'll ever go through, trials & tribulations, sickness, grief, all of the "human" experience.
Jesus took it all into Himself, His battle, He conquered! As we are now in Christ, we are simply waliking in His footsteps, resting in HIS finished works at the cross. We're "more than" because He is "Greater than"!
