The thrill of the game. The joy of victory. The fun of winning. And the excitement of competition. God is a big fan of sport and games. He created the universe with all its variety so that we could play, build and create with Him.
After all…
He is the Master Creator who made everything and invented the very games that we play today. After all, He did put Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden to “dress it and keep it.” And that, my friend, includes playing. (Genesis 2:15).
So, know this. God is a big fan of sport and games. And He created us for a game too. It’s called the “great game of life.”
God created mankind to be His children, to enjoy life and play with Him forever. He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to give us the best gift we could ever receive — the gift of salvation.

SUBSCRIBE: To be a winner, take part in the game of life. Sometimes it’s hard to know when to get involved. In every area of life, God has made some things winners and some things losers. But then there are other areas where we don’t know if we are winners or losers. And we can’t work out whether to get involved or not.

God has given us a plan ; and it’s been prepared for you and me. It begins today. The secret of making things winners is found in the Word of God. It doesn’t matter which book you look at first, but whatever book you choose or however you approach the Word, your road to victory is clearly marked out for you . So let’s get started .
When it comes to winning in the game of life, there are only two ways to go. They’re called success or failure. You can either be a winner or a loser. The choice is yours . But if you don’t know how to play, then you’re going to have trouble choosing which road to take. If you don’t know how to make things winners, then you may never choose the right road .
You see, the word “failure” has many meanings in the English language.

11 Ways to Live Out Your Love of God by Practicing Kindness & Generosity

SOCIALIZE: You can practice the game of life in many different ways. You don’t need to miss out on socializing for the sake of following God’s game plan. In fact, it is better to be out and about with other people than sitting at home alone. You will never know how God may use you to help someone else in some way. And it is better to socialize with many people than just one. You may meet someone who is going through the same thing that you are. Just because you know it all doesn’t mean other people do. Find out what others are going through, and maybe you can help each other understand where God is leading you. But remember, your eyes will be on Jesus!

PIT STOP: In the following article about living out your love of God, we will use a sports phrase to help us get this message across. Remember that the point is not just to win but also to play with fun and excitement, even when you lose.
When you love something, you want to do it and share it with others as often as possible. The love I have for my wife and kids drives me to want to be with them every chance I get. The same is true for God, because we have been radically saved by his love. His heart is for you loving him daily, so that he will see the fruit of your life and glorify himself. This joy of loving him is what we are going to talk about in this article called the “pit stop.”
