Give In to Be All In
The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
I have apps on my phone that control all kinds of things in my house. I have an app for my doorbell, security cameras, even one for my garage door opener – just to name a few. We love to have control. The funny thing is we really don’t have control over anything.
Further, we don’t even own anything. Psalm 24:1 says that everything belongs to God. It is literally all God’s. He owns and controls the whole world. Thinking about this fact can lead in all kinds of directions. I think that the believer’s reaction should be one of trust and security. If we really believe that everything in our life- all our “cool stuff”, our family, and yes, even our bank account – are all His; we will live differently. I believe living out this truth is freeing and can give us peace.
What better way to live than to place our total faith in the God of the universe who controls and owns it all? If we really understand this principle, we can be: less anxious about our/His family, less stingy with our/His time, less consumed with our/His career, more generous with our/His money. We can be “All In” with our/His life. Calvary Vision 2030 is an “All In” journey of faith for our Church. Will you join us on this “All In” journey?
