For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life – a ransom for many. - Mark 10:45


What does it mean to be Spiritually All in? Luke 22:41-42 says “Then He withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and began to pray, “Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me—nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.” Jesus exposed his dread of the coming trials, but he also reaffirmed his commitment to do what God wanted.

The cup he spoke of meant the terrible agony he knew he would endure, not only the horror of the crucifixion but, even worse, the total separation from God that he would have to experience in order to die for the world's sins.

Jesus’ example in Luke demonstrates to us that to be “All In” spiritually we have to sacrifice something. It’s clear Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice, a commitment we will never know but can learn from His example. What are you sacrificing for your team, family, or colleague to demonstrate that you are All In spiritually?

Think about a time when someone on your team made a personal sacrifice to help the team succeed. How did you respond when your teammate, captain, the team’s worst player, or your coach demonstrated unusual “All In” commitment and attitude? Were you aware of the costs associated with their commitment to the team?

  1. When does being a good teammate require a sportsperson to go “All In” and sacrifice for his or her team?

  2. Why do you want to Trust God’s goodness and wisdom as you choose His will over yours?

  3. Why do you want to pay the price to help your team achieve its goals?

  4. Think about a moment this week when someone from your team demonstrated that he or she was “All In.”

  5. What did it cost that person to commit so deeply to the team?

Jesus the son of God, made the ultimate sacrifice to be All In. Engaging in peak high velocity means engaging 100% physically, 100% emotionally, 100% mentally, and 100% spiritually. Full engagement draws on the physical, emotional, and mental capacity.

Creating awareness to this new level is the first step. Letting go of you for Him is the second step. Pray and ask Jesus to show you where, how, and what you need to change to engage in PHV(Peak High Velocity).
