ALL IN Reading Plan - Sermon Guide
APRIL 15: INTRODUCTION
Read All In by Mark Batterson, chapters 1-3.
The Christian faith is not boring, mundane, or safe. It is the greatest adventure any human being can ever experience. It demands all you have and are, and then it demands more. (1)
APRIL 22: PACK YOUR COFFIN
Read All In by Mark Batterson, chapters 4-7.
The Christian faith was never meant to be an easy road, a painless journey, or a simple three-step adherence to a set of beliefs. To follow Jesus’ demands we give everything and invest all we have, and are, for the One who has laid down everything for us. He gave His life for us. The question is: Will we give our lives for Him? (2)
Luke 9:23-25, John 3:27-30, Matthew 4:18-22, Joshua 3:5
APRIL 29: CHARGE
Read All In by Mark Batterson, chapters 8-9.
Many people play it safe, retreat when things get tough, and slip into predictable and familiar patterns. Christians who are all in take risks, charge forward even when it is tough, and are willing to try new things if there is a chance it will forward the cause of Jesus. (3)

MAY 6: RIM HUGGERS
Read All In by Mark Batterson, chapters 6, 10-11.
Being all in and living all out for Jesus is about action, taking chances, and following God’s will no matter what the cost. It is not enough to simply believe the Bible and have correct information about the Christian faith. We need to do something! (4)

MAY 13: BURN THE SHIPS
Read All In by Mark Batterson, chapters 12-17.
If we are going to go all in and all out for the All in All, it will mean following God’s Plan A for our life and not resorting or retreating to our Plan B. In a world where quitting and taking the safe route seems to be hitting epidemic levels, we need to burn the ships, press forward, and quit quitting! (5)
