Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God
Today I watched a football game with Bobby. I don’t usually watch football, but I had been working all day at church and I was tired when I came home, so I sat down on the couch to rest. And that’s when I saw this football player with Hebrews 12:1,2 written on his face. Where most of the guys just put black under their eyes, he had black and white letters under his, referencing a verse from The Bible. And during the game, the broadcasters actually read the verse, on National TV, in front of millions of fans. How cool is that?
The player’s name is Tim Tebow. If you live in Florida, you know he plays for the Florida Gators. He is an incredible football player. He was the first player to win the Heisman trophy as a sophomore. He has been breaking records his entire career. And that is wonderful.
But the best thing about Tim Tebow is that he loves Jesus and he’s not ashamed to share his faith with the world. He wears his faith for all to see!
In a world where sports heroes are really not role models, Tim Tebow is a breath of fresh air.
Tim Tebow … You ROCK!
Father, thank you for this young man who loves you and is not ashamed to share his faith in you. I pray for you to continue to strengthen him and guide him as he goes on with his career.
I love you Jesus!
In Your Name I Pray,
God’s Blessing Upon You!
It’s All Because of Jesus!
