Those of you that know me are most likely thinking that this blog is going to be about Adrian Peterson breaking a long run for the Minnesota Vikings or Ricky Rubio’s return to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ starting line-up. Those would be really good guesses. . . .but they would be wrong. The Game Changer I am referring to is Jesus!
As you know, a game changer is somebody who radically changes a current situation. A game changer affects everything. Big-time game changers can affect every way of thinking and every outlook. They influence hopes and plans, all dreams and possibilities. Jesus is that sort of game changer!
When Jesus entered the world, all of humanity was affected. The changes that Jesus’ presence in the world brought about continue to be felt and always will. Things will never be the same. All of eternity has been altered by Jesus. The Bible goes to great lengths to tell us how Jesus is the manifestation of God’s love. This Game Changer is the fulfilment of all God’s promises. Jesus’ game changing actions have led to ever-lasting life!
In response to Jesus’ game-changing presence in the world we are called to invite Him to have an impact on our lives. His presence can alter any situation by shedding light into dark spots and brightening the joy of our days. Welcome Jesus to bring God’s glory and love, peace and forgiveness, healing and strength. It is amazing what Jesus, the game changer, can do!
