To become skilled at beating your opponent in Chess (or in this case, Lego Chess!), two of the most important things one can do is 1.) Study the players guide, and 2.) Associate oneself with skilled players who may act as mentors in the game. With learning, advice, and practice, you may gain the skills and wits you need to beat the other player.
The Christian life is very much like the chess concept. If we are going to grow in Christ-likeness, it is imperative that we study our Bibles. On top of that, it is extremely important to associate ourselves with fellow Christians for friendship and moral support, as well as attend a good church where we may be mentored by a pastor who is gifted in delivering deeper insight into the Word of God (great way to learn truths that the average person may not think of when they read the scriptures!).
With the help of God and fellow believers, we may better our knowledge and gain the necessary perseverance to battle our sinful nature, resist the devil, and help escape spiritual apathy.
"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25
"Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." - Ephesians 6:11
