“When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’” Acts 2:37

Think

God wants us to go “all in” for Him, because He has gone all in for us. But going “all in” for God isn’t something we can just think about. We can’t hear the call to action, and not make a move. Going “all in” for God requires just that…a move. We must take action when we go all in for God. Just as the Jews in today’s verse, we just ask the question, “What shall we do?” And then we must do it.

Maybe you need to pick up the phone and call someone to ask for forgiveness. Maybe you need to step out and invite your neighbor to church. Maybe you need to humble yourself before a friend and admit that you’ve done them wrong. Maybe you need to begin to obey God in the area of your finances. Or maybe you need to make the first move to go all in and admit to God that you are a sinner and are in need of His saving grace.

Whatever move you need to make, don’t sit by and let the game go on without you. Instead, do the work to go “all in” for God today.

Pray

Ask God right now for clarity in whatever move you need to make. Then, ask for the courage to actually make that move.

Act

Think of one area you need to make an “all in” move for God. Write that step down on a piece of paper. Commit to making that move today. After you’ve made the move, tear that paper up, throw it away, and look forward to making another “all in” move tomorrow.
