Hey, I am Derrick Gates, from Derrick Gates Ministries. I am the director of From Death, and you are watching God Today. Today I am going to talk about being all in or all out. God is tired of a bunch of people that are all in the world or all-out into nothing. Listen, there is a scripture in the Bible that talks about being lukewarm. You don’t want to be lukewarm. Here is the thing. I see a lot of people in the church today. They have one foot in the Kingdom and they have one foot in the world. You come to church on Sunday, you give the hallelujah shout, your praise, you get up there and dance, you might even give your offering. But then, you go out and live like hell all week. When I say live like hell, I am talking about you live like the devil. You live like the devil. I am not trying to be judgmental over your life, but what I am saying is God is not pleased with that. He wants people 100% sold out for the Kingdom of God.
I remember what it was like to be sold out for the devil. And there is no way I could have been a drug dealer that still had compassion for the world. It just didn’t happen. That is the way I see the Kingdom of God. There is no way I can halfway serve God. I can’t halfway serve Him. I want to be a guy that is 100% sold out for the Kingdom of God. How much better would our lives be if we didn’t try to walk this weird balance beam of keeping the world and the Kingdom of God happy. It doesn’t work. It doesn’t work.
Let me tell you something. If you are going to be all in on something, you better be all into the Kingdom of God. That is where your abundance is going to come from, that is where your joy is going to come from, that is where your victory is going to come from. So many people wonder why their life is falling apart. It’s like, “I go to church on Sunday.” But, what are you doing every other day of the week?
Your joy, your victory, your grace, your mercy is all from the Kingdom of God. Why not be 100% sold out unto the Kingdom? I am telling you right now, if you would just let yourself be sold out for the Kingdom, you would see such a dramatic difference in your life. What it says is, “The thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy, but He came to give you life abundantly.” What does that abundant life look like? It looks like the overflow from Heaven. And we wonder why we don’t see it. We don’t see it because we come in on a Sunday and we live like the devil the rest of the week, It is time to be sold out – it is all in for the Kingdom of God.
