At the HiScrivener household, we are a XBOX 360 family.
Maybe it’s the controller. Quite possibly it’s the grandfathered original XBOX games I had, and am just too frugal to spend $50 twice for the same CD. Whatever the reason, Santa knew what to bring my lil’ Wall Watcher – and his thumb blisters haven’t healed yet.
However, both my sister and sister-in-law purchased the Wii for their munchkins – and it’s great, with the exception of that plasma TV being ruined with the nunchaku I careened during a vicious game of bowling.
But now, the game has become a tool. Call it an epiphany, or just the result of boredom playing baseball 182 times in a row.
I have discovered a way to witness with this technology unlike anyway you could with a PS3 or a X360. “Wii Love Jesus!”
It’s so easy to introduce my family to Jesus – just create his avatar. Who knew?! I didn’t… and there he is.
So, here’s my challenge to Wall Watchers everywhere: if you are in the store or at a friend’s house, remember Wii Love Jesus! If you are a little embarrassed to witness, Wii love Jesus. Not sure of the address for certain scriptures? Wii love Jesus. Looking for that divine opportunity to discuss your Savior with loved ones and complete strangers alike? Wii love Jesus.
Whatever the reason and whenever the season: Wii love Jesus!
I’m telling you, it worked. Both households and I discussed not the mysteries of the Gospel, or the riddles of the universe, but rather why did I create my God on a video game. Easy. Just like most of my friends and family, “Wii love Jesus!”
So, Wall Watchers, if you got pictures and a story, I got a blog post with your name and testimony all over it. Post a comment or send me a e-mail. Peace.
