Jesus Go!

Jesus Go thumbA few years back Pokémon GO became the most popular game app of all time. It still is, actually, although it doesn’t get as much publicity now. The premise of the first game to popularize augmented reality (AR), was simple and addictive: Go! Capture! and Train! 

When my daughters explained the rules, I said, “Wait! Jesus came up with that first!” In Matthew 28:19, 20, he tells his followers to “Go into all the world, tell people the good news (capture their hearts), and make disciples of them (train them to pass it on).” Why? Because apart from knowing Him (you gotta know before you can go), it’s the most important thing you’ll ever do!

I liked the idea so much, I wrote a short script* about a teenage girl, her Pokémon-obsessed kid brother, and a man who tells them just what I told my daughters. I also got some friends together and shot a 4 minute movie.** Here it is:

    The video makes it easy. My spouse got hooked into that game (yes, even seniors…at the younger end get silly). Around the neighborhood walking, driving or out shopping, it was not uncommon for him to just turn left or right for no reason; circling around until he zeroed in. Was so embarrassing! LOL. If I recall, there were a LOT of terrible mis-steps and accidents people found themselves in by not paying attention to real life through real spirit and God’s real creation.

    Point taken, Mitch…and well stated and artfully so.
