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 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

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?

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 …”


  • 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…

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!
