Bet Your Life

Born An All-In Gamer:

Like it or not we are designated players in the game of life. It is about who we are and why we are here. The game is for our spirit and soul’s eternal destination.  We are born to play the game.

God’s Purpose: ALL-IN Peace and Life

God loves you and wants you to experience peace and life—abundant and eternal.

The Bible the rule book says…

We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1). For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16). I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

Why don’t most people have this peace and abundant life that God planned for us to have?

The Problem: Our Separation

God created us in His own image to have an abundant life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him. God gave us a will and a freedom of choice. We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God.

The Bible the rule and play book says…

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).

Our prior games and attempts to reach God

People have tried in many ways to bridge this gap between themselves and God… The Bible says… There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death (Proverbs 14:12). But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear (Isaiah 59:2).
No wager reaches God…except one.

Wager III

God’s Play: The Cross

Jesus Christ died on the Cross and rose from the grave. He paid the penalty for our sin and bridged the gap between God and people.

The Bible the rule and play book says

For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:5). For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God (1 Peter 3:18). But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). God has provided the only way. Each person must make a choice.

Your ALL-IN Bet: Receive Christ

We must trust Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and receive Him by personal invitation.

All-In Inc.Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me (Revelation 3:20).
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God (John 1:12).
That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9).
Where are you?
Will you receive Jesus Christ right now?

The ALL-IN Prayer-“Bet Your Life”

Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, gambler, alcoholic, druggie and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died for my sins. I want to turn from my sins. I now invite You to come into my heart and life. I want to trust and follow You as Lord and Savior. I want to be ALL-IN with You, Jesus. I by faith believe in You. Amen.
God’s Assurance: His Word, His Rule Book,
The Bible: Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth says…If you prayed this prayer,
Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13).
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast (Ephesians 2:8,9).
Receiving Christ, we are born into God’s “Royal” family by playing the “Royal Flush” and wagering on Jesus because you have “Bet Your Life” and are now “ALL-IN” eternity through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit who incorporates and indwells every believer. This is called regeneration, and the new birth. You have won you will dwell in heaven as you have played the cards by God’s rules.
This is just the beginning of a new life game in Christ! To deepen this relationship it is suggested:

  • Read your Bible everyday to know Christ better.
  • Talk to God in prayer every day.
  • Tell others about Christ.
  • Worship, fellowship, and serve with other Christians in a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching, Christ-exalting church where Christ is preached.
  • As Christ’s representative in a needy world, demonstrate your new life and game by your love and concern for others.
