Are You All In? The expression â€œall inâ€? refers to wagering oneâ€™s entire stake in poker, and thus has the connotation of being entirely committed to oneâ€™s hand, or by extension, to whatever one is doing. One could commit oneself entirely to a business proposition by investing all of oneâ€™s savings, for instance. Committing yourself to God is a lot like declaring that you are â€œall in.â€? That is, we canâ€™t play half of our stake or only invest half of our resources in the kingdom of heaven.We must be completely committed to the spiritual life, wholeheartedly and singlemindedly giving our lives over to God. Anything else and you just arenâ€™t all in. â€œWith my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments!â€? Psalm 119:10
