Dude I Just Levelled Up!@!@!@!@

So the main goal in basically any MMORPG is to level up or advance in experience and progression. I really enjoyed these games for several reason, but this was a main reason. You could take a basic, run-of-the-mill character and with a little time, okay a lot of time and effort you could basically make him a great hero. So if we were to just look at the character progression alone we see this. In the beginning the character was weak, inexperienced and just wasn't the hero it wanted to be and knew it could be, but through determination and constant effort it progressed. It slowly, but surely increased. It gradually changed from the block of stone into a marvelous marble masterpiece. This wasn't done in the click of a mouse or the defeating of one foe, but through numerous triumphs and trials. I will now show you this relates to us and our relationship to God.

Just as the player behind the character doesn't want to stay as a "Noob" or an inexperienced player, but wants that character to become better stronger and more capable. So does our Creator want us to advance. He wants us to become better and stronger in the spiritual sense and in obedience to Him. And just like the games it doesn't come through one experience or through one small or even great action, but through an immensity of diligence and perseverance. Now it is by Christ that we can reach our full potential or "Level Up", but He has asked that we put forth our effort and show our love for Him by keeping His commandments. This is the way He has given us and this is the way He walked, this is evidence of His unshaking and unfailing love and trust in Our Father when He said, "not what I will, but what Thou will." (Mark 14:36)
