INTRO: (Prayer) MAKE THEM TURN OFF THEIR CELL PHONES! Today we are going to play a game. Get Started:

  1. Choose Your Character: Jesus or Satan.
  2. Choose Your Weapon: Sword (of bible) Belt ( of Truth) Breastplate (of Righteousness) Shield (of Faith).
  3. Choose Your Stage: Planet or Earth.

There are three levels:

  1. Practice with Your Character.
  2. Beat the level!
  3. Beat the Boss!

BODY: Let’s play!


  1. 2 Corinthians 3:18 – CHANGE = Metamorphosis
  2. ILLUSTRATION: Caterpillar changes little by little into a Butterfly!
  3. Change happens little by little – depending on what you look at! -Psalm 16:8, 105:5, Hebrews 12:2.
  4. RENEWING THE MIND = Character Change! – the more you look at something, the more you become it!
  5. ILLUSTRATION: Tupac / Justin Bieber
  6. Over by your Testimony of Jesus – or BE OVERCOME by your Testimony of the enemy (Revelation 12:11).
  7. VIDEO – Joshua 1:8 – Meditate DAILY on the WORD – Psalm 119:11: Hid WORD in heart to NOT SIN.


  1. In order for your character NOT to die, you have to remain “unspotted from the world.” (James 1:27)
  2. Do the opposite, and your character DIES!
  3. Would playing violent games, and watching violent movies, kill your character? 
  4. EXHIBIT A: Adam Lanza, killed 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut

  6. CHEAT CODES: Bible (Psalm 119:11) and PRAYER (Matthew 26:41)
  7. Remember – YOUR CHARACTER is the one FIGHTING – with him you can OVERCOME: 1 John 2:14.
  8. PROPHECY: WARS (Matthew 24:6) and global HATE (2 Timothy 3:2-4).
