Tim Tebow is known for often having the Bible verse John 3:16 painted on his ‘eye black’ & being very open about his Christian beliefs – so open, in fact that he makes lots of people uncomfortable and some of them frequent church on Sundays. Why would that be? Tebow is by all accounts & to our best knowledge, no fake – he’s says what he believes & lives by it. Why does it make people uncomfortable? Maybe for the same reasons Jesus made people uncomfortable? This is something that should be explored further.

John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Chicago Tribune: In a shocking upset Sunday, the Broncos heisted the Super Bowl dreams of the heavily favored Steelers, capping wild-card weekend with the wildest of wins — a 29-23 victory in overtime. Minutes after the game, Tebow recounted his memories of the final play as if they were snapshots in his head. “When I saw him scoring?” he said. “First of all, `Thank you, Lord!’ And then I was running pretty fast chasing him — like I could catch up to DT — and then I just jumped in the stands. First time I’ve done that. That was fun. Then just got on a knee and thanked the Lord again and tried to celebrate with my teammates.” Tebow threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another, pumping new hope into a franchise that backed into the postseason while losing its last three games. Tebow became just the second Broncos quarterback, along with Hall of Famer John Elway, to both pass and run for a touchdown in a postseason game. What’s more, Tebow and Thomas joined Elway and Michael Young as the only quarterback-receiver tandems to connect on a pair of 50-yard completions in the same playoff game.




Line of Fire : Does Tim Tebow embarrass you? Why? Maybe because of how you would be embarrassed if you were in Tebow’s shoes. Are you as open as Tebow about your faith? Should you be? Why are you not?

Also, we understand God doesn’t care who wins the game, but the fact is that Tebow uses his sport as a platform to exalt Jesus & share his faith. Why would God not honour that? It could very well be that this huge attention directed to Tebow was to allow him to do just that.

Some videos – for those that has not yet seen Tim in action & hear him talk about his Lord & saviour.
