Tim Tebow: How I've Seen God's Hand In My Career
The oft-praised and ridiculed former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow still gets his message out even when he's not on the field. And it's not just as an ESPN analyst. The vocal Christian athlete can deliver a sermon, too.
According to the Christian Post, Tebow recently spoke at Real Life Church in Clermont, Florida to share the evidence he's seen in his career of God's hand at work.
Known for displaying "John 3:16" in his eye black, Tebow says that verse has carried him through tough times, fueled his desire to share the Gospel, and even shown up in unexpected places, like when he threw 316 yards at a playoff game against the Pittsburg Steelers in 2012, as well as having an average of 31.6 yards for each completion.
During his sermon, he said, "It matters whose team you're on. As a Christian, it's pretty awesome to have God as a teammate. With Jesus on your team, you have a lot to offer. When we bring what we have and match it with who He is, miracles happen. God can take the little things we do and make them big."
Tebow believes God fueled his sports ability to help make him a well-known witness to share the Good News.
At an event last year in Tennessee entitled God's Purpose for America, the International Business Times reports that Tebow shared a message, saying, "What's amazing when you get up and do something is what God does in your life."
