You’re Invited Into God’s Family—Here’s What That Means For You 

by Jenn Jewell

Your friends have plans to go see the latest movie. Your parents are thinking of having a casual BBQ over the weekend. You’re invited by your LifeGroup leader to go bowling with everyone next weekend. The question is: Are you in? 

God, similarly, is asking:

You in?

Here’s an excerpt from the I’m In Bible Plan

Do you remember what it feels like to go all in?

Maybe you poured your soul and sweat into a significant project or job interview. Maybe it was tying the knot with the one you love. Maybe you went to battle for your health, your family, or a dream. 

Whatever it was, you know the feeling. The grit. The passion. The fire. That raw and radical moment when your actions uncovered what was already happening in your heart.

Did you know that same choice—the choice to go all in (or not)—is one that’s still available to you today? It’s a gift that’s offered every morning when you open your eyes and dare to greet the sunrise.

Who will you choose to trust?

Who will you choose to serve?

Who will you choose to love?

Who will you choose to worship?

We’re called to love God and people with everything we’ve got. We’ve also been empowered to take the good news of Jesus’ redeeming, scandalous love to the ends of the earth, starting within our own homes.

But the first step toward living an all in life requires a simple—even shaky—yes. A humble mustard-seed measure of faith planted in the dirt.

Listen …

You are invited.

You are invaluable.

You are influential.

You are invested.

So, what’s it gonna be?

Will you join the greatest mission on earth or settle for watching from the sidelines? Will you dare to believe God has created you with precise intention? Will you leverage the influence you’ve been given for His glory or for your own?  

You get to choose.
