The expression "all in" refers to wagering one's entire stake in poker, and thus has the connotation of being entirely committed to one's hand, or by extension, to whatever one is doing. One could commit oneself entirely to a business proposition by investing all of one's savings, for instance. Committing yourself to God is a lot like declaring that you are "all in." That is, we can't play half of our stake or only invest half of our resources in the kingdom of heaven. We must be completely committed to the spiritual life, wholeheartedly and single-mindedly giving our lives over to God. Anything else and you just aren't all in. - Christopher Simon $34 per year in Rolette, Towner, Bottineau and Pierce counties $36 per year elsewhere in North Dakota $38 per year for snowbirds $42 per year elsewhere in the U.S.A.
