Hello and welcome! This is the Geeks Under Grace daily devotional where we dive into the Bible everyday. We take devotionals from bible.com and read the verses, devotional, and give our own commentary. Sometimes we will have multiple writers, but most of the time it will be just me. I hope you enjoy and comment with your own commentary.
This devotional is titled “Stellar Kart – The Overflow Devo”. It is only 7 days long. I use the ESV bible but feel free to use the version of your choosing.
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
The song “All In” started with a phrase “I am not ashamed.” It’s one thing to stand up for what you believe when it is convenient, cool, or easy. It’s an entirely different thing to be 100% sold out for what you believe 24/7. At times in the last few years, I fell into the trap of believing in my own skills. I am the type of person who can figure stuff out. I am pretty good at fixing things, I’m a hard worker, etc. I began to think that if I worked hard enough, what I wanted to happen would happen. I had it all wrong. I wasn’t necessarily doing anything wrong, I just wasn’t in tune with what God wanted for my life. It was all about me. I finally gave up and dove into the Word to reconnect with God.
I want to be ALL IN. I don’t want to just give God Sunday morning or talk to Him when I need something, I want ALL of Him. To get that, I have to give Him my all.
I have been there many times. Been at the point where I think I can do things on my own with no one’s help. Especially not God’s. As I have gotten older, I have come to realize this is not true. I cannot do anything worth doing on my own. I need God’s help and I even need other people’s help. That is harder to admit than I would like. I aim to be all in for God.
