Be a Disciple - September 19, 2021
No doubt, you’ve heard the phrase “all in.” It means that the person saying it is totally committed to the activity they are talking about. It may be something like a hobby, or a food they like, or a sports team they’re a fan of, or a possession they own. When you are “all in”, you are totally committed. Are you “all in” for Jesus? The Christians that have the greatest hope in this world are those who are “all in.” They’ve left nothing on the table. They aren’t wavering between two philosophies. They aren’t high centered between two competing ideologies. They are completely surrendered to Jesus with their whole life.
When Jesus was walking on the face of this earth, He was gaining popularity fast. People loved the miracles He was doing, the healings he performed, the casting out of demons, and the changed lives they witnessed after receiving salvation from Him. Great crowds accompanied Him wherever He went. But Jesus knew that many were NOT “all in.” That is when He turned to them and spelled out the cost of discipleship. He showed those who were fans but NOT really followers what it means to be “all in” for the Kingdom of God.
