"Jesus didn't die to make us safe. He died to make us dangerous." Many of us believe this, and yet, somewhere along the way we have chosen comfort over obedience, familiarity over faithfulness. The passion we once felt for the Gospel has ebbed, and we primarily seek out the easy path in life. Discipleship seems hard and hardly worth the trouble. However, this is not the life Jesus intended when He gave His all for us. There's more to following Christ and it's more worthwhile and life-changing than you first thought. In All In, Mark Batterson issues a call to believers to dethrone their personal desires and go "all in" for Christ. You may feel afraid to surrender your whole life to Jesus, but when you do, you'll discover that's when the real adventure of faith begins.

The Gospel costs nothing, but demands everything. If Jesus is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all. It's all or nothing. It's now or never. It's time to ante up and go all in with God.
