All in for the kingdom

All In for the Kingdom!

Mt. 13:44-46

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he hadand bought that field.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.

Mt. 16:24

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”


God already went all in for us

God Already Went “All In” for Us!

  • God sent a part of himself to come to earth andlive as a man …

    • Lk 1:30-31 - But the angel said to her, “…You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.”

    • Jn 1:1,14 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God … The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

      …for the specific purpose of dying in our place!

    • Rom 5:8 - But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.


Paul lived all in for the king

Paul Lived “All In” for the King

Gal. 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Phil. 3:7-8

But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ…


How do we live all in for the king

How do we live “All In” for the King?

Know we don’t have the winning hand on our own

  • No matter how hard we try, we can’t be good enough!

  • Phil 3:9 – …not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ…

    Know that In Christ the game is won

  • Jn 16:33 – “… in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

  • There is no doubt! We have to believe it fully!

  • 2 Tim 1:12 – “… I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day.”

Eustace: “No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t do it on my own …”


Matthew 13 44 46

  • Don’t let Satan bluff us that he has a better hand

    • Everything the world has to offer is cheap and temporary

    • 2 Cor 4:18 – So we fix our eyes on not what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

  • Don’t lose focus – keep our eyes on the King

    • Commitment can wane when we are distracted from the prize

    • Heb12:2-3 – “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus … so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

How do we live “All In” for the King?


When we are all in

When We Are All In…

Rom. 8:28-39

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him …

If God is for us who can be against us?

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or sword? … No, in all these things we are more than conquerors.

It’s All Good!
