ALL IN
LIVING A LIFE OF DEDICATION TO THE THINGS IN LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST

Whatever you do, do it from the heart for the Lord and not for people. (‭Colossians‬ ‭3‬:‭23‬ CEB)

GOD CREATED US TO INVEST OUR LIVES NOT JUST SIMPLY LIVE OUR LIVES
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” (‭Mark‬ ‭12‬:‭30-31‬ NKJV)

THE SECRET OF A GREAT LIFE IS INVESTING INTO OTHERS
Whoever wants to become great among you must serve the rest of you like a servant. (‭Matthew‬ ‭20‬:‭26‬a NCV)

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (‭Mark‬ ‭10‬:‭45‬ NLT)

WHO ARE YOU GIVING YOU LIFE AWAY TO?
1) INVESTING MY LIFE INTO OTHERS CHANGES MY FOCUS

.... the Lord Jesus himself said, ‘There is more happiness in giving than in receiving." (‭Acts‬ ‭20‬:‭35‬b GNT)

The King will reply, ‘I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these followers of mine, you did it for me!’ (‭Matthew‬ ‭25‬:‭40‬ GNT)

2) INVESTING MY LIFE INTO OTHERS MAKES IT MUCH MORE MEANINGFUL
If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. (‭Mark‬ ‭8‬:‭35‬ NLT)

Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15‬:‭58‬a NLT)

3) INVESTING INTO SPIRITUAL GROWTH HELPS ME SERVE OTHERS BETTER

Teach me, Lord, what you want me to do, and I will obey you faithfully; teach me to serve you with complete devotion. (‭Psalms‬ ‭86‬:‭11‬ GNB)

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭4‬:‭10‬ NLT)

4) INVESTING INTO A LIFE THAT MATTERS REQUIRES COMMITMENT

MY COMMITMENTS SHOW MY VALUES
No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. (‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭24‬ NLT)

MY COMMITMENTS SHAPE MY LIFE

Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭4‬:‭23‬ NLT)

MY COMMITMENTS DETERMINE MY DESTINY
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? (‭Mark‬ ‭8‬:‭36‬ NLT)

because Christ is the only foundation. Whatever we build on this foundation will be tested by fire on the day of judgment. Then everyone will find out if we have used gold, silver, and precious stones, or wood, hay, and straw. We will be rewarded if our building is left standing. But if it is destroyed by the fire, we will lose everything. Yet we ourselves will be saved, like someone escaping from flames. (‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭11-15‬ CEV)
