The Only True Game Changer

by Lee Buford on October 17, 2010

There are many burnt-out, tired, and over-used phrases that seem to resonate with any given generation. Ours is no different. I’m sure you can think of several off the top of your head.

How about “Game Changer“?

What is a game changer? If you look around and listen a bit, especially on any Social Media platform, “game changers” are all the rage. Everybody wants to be one, know one, invent one, or own one.

The reality is, however, there are very few people or things that actually change the game…any game. Sure, there are people and things that may change YOUR game, situation, attitude, or path in life, but they don’t change THE game.

THE game is so much bigger than you and me, our time and place, and our circumstances and realities. THE game has only EVER been changed by one person, JESUS, through one method, the CROSS.

18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. – Romans 5:18-19 – ESV

Hip phrases and cultural jargon are “cool” in the proper context. But to think that an iPad or a company like Twitter or Facebook is a game changer is too simplistic and uninformed.

JESUS was, and is, THE ONLY “game changer” for all of us. And HE changed THE game on the CROSS…long before you and I were ever part of today’s game.
