"All In" living

Luke 1: 38
And Mary said, "Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; be it done to me acording to your word." And the angel departed from her.

Ester 4: 16
"Go assemble all the Jews who are found in Susa, and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my maidens also will fast in the same way. And thus I will go in to the king, which is not according to the law; and if I perish, I perish."

Genesis 38: 25 - 26
It was while she was being brought out that she sent to her father-in-law, saying, "I am with child by the man to whom these things belong." And she said, "Please examine and see, whose signet ring and cords, and staff are these ?" And Judah recognized them and said, "She is more righteous than I, inasmuch as I did not give her to my son Shelah."

Daniel 6: 16
Then the king gave orders, and Daniel was brought in and cast into the lions' den. The king spoke and said to Daniel, "Your God whom you constantly serve will Himself deliver you."

Matthew 14: 8
And having been prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist"

Mark 14: 36
And He was saying, "Abba! Father! All things are possible for Thee; remove this cup from Me; yet not what I will, but what Thou wilt."

Hebrews 12: 4
You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin;

Mary, all in - (obedience to Gods will) - through which came our savior.

Ester, all in - (saved her people) - through which came our savior.
Tamar, all in - (carried on her deceased husbands name) - through which came our savior.
Daniel, all in - (kept God's people true to Him in exile) - through which came our savior.
John, all in - (prepared the way) - through which came our savior.
Jesus, all in - (our savior, for us) - through which comes our salvation.

Us, ?? - (spreading the good news) - through which our savior is proclaimed to the world.

We are called as Christian people to resist sin even to the point of our very blood being shed. As we set this FootPrint down are we "all in" for Him ?
