Today we are talking about Super Panda Adventures. I have been going through this game for the last several months. Since “Hope Station” with Victims and Villians last fall… Till now. I’m super close to finishing which has me pumped because this will be the first game I’ve beaten all the way through except plants vs. zombies. The storyline for this game is absolutely adorable and if you would like to watch me play and finish this game then check out our twitch channel.

In the game, you play as a character named Fu, who is a panda learning swordplay and different types of martial arts to become the protector of the princess. The day that he is to be knighted and take up his duty of protecting the princess Robots attack and decimate his town… And his world. The robots are hidden as different things and have created monsters that attack you. You then spend the game trying to find and rescue the princess. FU go through the game accomplishing different things. Getting different amulets and abilities that help you fight the robots. Eventually, Fu builds a space ship and travels to the robots world because the robots have taken the princess off the planet. Fu discovers once there a hologram of his teacher telling him that he really was not being trained to protect the princess. He was really and truly being prepared to take out the robots and return peace to their world. So this throws Fu for a bit of a loop. The purpose he thought he had was different. But at the same time… He is prepared for anything. He can fight robots.

In 2nd Timothy 4:2-5 Paul tells Timothy “proclaim the Word! Be ready when it is convenient or inconvenient. Confront, rebuke, encourage—with complete patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not put up with sound instruction, but they will pile up for themselves teachers in keeping with their own desires, to have their ears tickled. And they will turn away from hearing the truth and wander off to myths. You, however, keep a clear mind in all things, withstand hardship, do the work of proclaiming the Good News, and fulfill your service.”

We see Paul exhorting Timothy to be ready no matter what. Be clear headed so you can see the truth. As Christians, we need to be ready no matter what is going on to handle things in a godly manner. The things of this world are getting confused, conflicting and we have the responsibility to not only act as we think Jesus would act but to be ready at all times to share the gospel. Fu did not realize he was ready to fight the robots, or even that he would have to. But because of his training, he was.

We need to be ready like Fu.

How do we do this?

  • Read the scriptures regularly,
  • Pray daily
  • And think about the things we pray for and the things we read. We need to keep our minds on heavenly things. Remember to keep your focus on what is important.

Question of the week: what was your first video game you have completed? Or the first one you want to complete?
