As you may know, Heartise had a post about Jesus having game over the past week.
The reality is that Jesus had God (was/is God) not game.
This is what happens when your “truth” is game. Everything you see in reality becomes in reference to game.
This is not how Christians are supposed to think or act. Instead, we are to act like Jesus did in bringing everything in reference to God.
As the Scriptures state,
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who [a]substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who [b]substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight!
Is the concern of Jesus over holding His frame… or rather what God wants Him to do and nothing can stop Him?
Is the concern of Jesus over social proof, or situationally aware, or not being boring… or reaching out to those around Him?
Is the concern of Jesus over being vulnerable… or rather using His situation and knowledge to connect with others to bring them to the faith?
Is Jesus a “dark triad” or instead pushing people to see Truth at all times?
This is why I continually say that Christians don’t need game but rather God. When you are willing to stand up for God then you have His joy, grace, forgiveness, and charisma within you. And you will become a man or a woman who is attractive and desirable to other Christians.
It may be useful to understand some aspects of how to relate to other people, but at the heart of the matter is that we should be building up relationships with others in relation to Christ. When you can connect with people on a level of passionate discussion and are solid in what you believe then your mind is transformed and you will be transformed.
We’re not about emulating being attractive. Though, much of what we are called to do as Christians can be attractive as we attempt to emulate Jesus.
