In this episode, @BadGamerElite talks about giving God glory in our day to day lives and how even the tiniest acts of kindness can be a witness of that glory to our fellow nerds.

Exodus 33:18-20
Then Moses said, “Now show me your glory.” And the Lord said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the Lord, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.”

Bad gamer, elite. Your host for this sound maiden podcast, sponsored by life fest.com God games. And geekery gives us an opportunity every Tuesday to chat about the crossroads of my passions and my faith. I can't wait to learn and discuss with you. Every Monday night, I play a video game called Overwatch with my online community. I like to think of it as chess with weapons at the end of each match, this is what they call the play of the game, where one player is highlighted and you get to see their skill. It's a time of praise for that player from everyone involved, that player is lifted on a pedestal and given glory. If you will. I propose that if we can give God's creation glory in a game, we can give God glory through games. And that's what this podcast will explore. How we as humans, geeky, humans can give guide glory.

Speaker 2:

Now for the sake of argument, let's define glory in a way that we can all understand. God is dope and you best recognize that's right. I went old school. We don't need to complicate things. God is dope. And you best recognize now in the Bible, Exodus 33, that's the book of Exodus, chapter 33 verses 18 and 20 Moses asks God to show him how dopey was. And God told him you can't handle it right after that, we got the 10 commandments. That's gotta be super dope. You know what else I think is super dope. lifevest.com is the website for one of the largest Christian music festivals in the nation. Life Fest takes place in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This year, 2020, July 9th through the 12th. I can not wait to rock out with some of my favorite bands, including skillet. Oh, I cannot wait. I want to see you there for a party with a purpose, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, light Fest 2020.

Speaker 2:

So if we know that God is so amazing, we should live that out in our lives. So how can you show how awesome God is in your day to day? I'll give you one way you can. And I would love to hear from you this week, about the other ways we can give God glory in our gaming, you can find me on Twitter as God games geekery or on Instagram as God games geekery instead of raising over a loss or a bad move, thank that person for showing you that you can get better at this game. Maybe you send them a PM, a private message to a random, random player saying congratulations to them in short, love your neighbor. Or as some of my friends like to say, love thy nerd, that's all for this week. I can't wait to join you where you live, play, and work. Remember

Speaker 3:

You will.
