Give it All is taken from John 15:13, “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friend.” We are created in God’s great image and likeness. We are created to give 100%, nothing less. We are created to be Eternal Champions. How do we live as this champion, how do we unleash this awesome potential? We can search our entire lives for the greatest performance enhancers, the tools that can help us get to the top. We can invest in the best equipment, the best coaches, the best programs; yet, when it is all said and done, it is not the gear that makes the athlete, it is not the facilities, the equipment, the programs, or even the coaches. Even though these aspects can be tremendous tools, the greatest performance enhancer comes from inside you, comes from the heart. God has given each one of you the power to reach your ultimate potential. The greatest athlete in all of history and the greatest athletic event in all of history is Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross, where He won for us our Eternal Championship! Where he gave it all. Jesus Christ is the ultimate performance enhancer, and has given us the model to unleash the champion in us, the model of sacrificial love, the courageous love of laying down your life for a friend. You could have the best tools and the best opportunities to improve your game, but if you go through the motions, those tools are worthless. Have you ever lost a game and knew you had more to give? It is a sickening feeling. This illuminates the fact we are created to give it all, to give 100%. It is the most satisfying thing we can do. When we live for ourselves or worry about ourselves, we can be inconsistent in our efforts and performance. John 15:13 demonstrates there is no greater way to the top, there is no greater way to give 100%, than to give it all for the person standing next to you. “Do nothing out of selfishness or vainglory; rather, humbly regard others as more important than yourselves, not looking out for your own interest, but the interest of others. Have the same attitude as Christ Jesus.” Phil 2: 3-5. If we are truly those that want to be the best we can be and are willing to strive for it, our efforts will lead us to Christ. It is in Christ and his model, alone, that we can live as that Eternal Champion.
