I sat watching the Steeler/Bronco's game wearing my Polamalou T-shirt and Steeler flannel pants. My head resting on my Steeler pillow, I sipped soda from my Steeler mug and cheered for the Bronco's! I couldn't help it. "Your father would be turning in his grave." Dan laughed.
I admire Tim Tebow, because I am thrilled to see a Christian love Jesus without shame or apology. We should be like him. It's a lot easier to hide our light. Yet, Jesus says we are to shine His light. We live in a world where we are afraid to do so. Good for Tim Tebow. He's not afraid.
My granddaughter's school had a parade where the students brought their favorite book and dressed like a character in that book. She dressed as an angel and carried her Bible. Some wondered if Gracie would get into trouble. She didn't.
The response to Tim Tebow is overwhelming. People are Tebowing all over the world. Many for the wrong reasons. That's all right. Others are now more bold about their faith and that is good.
In a world where we fear a seven-year old carrying her Bible in a school parade, I heard John 3:16 read on prime-time network news. Wow! May His Word not return void.
Tim Tebow invites a family who is critically ill to each football game. He pays their way. After each game he doesn't join the team doing what they do, he joins the family of the sick and celebrates with them. Now that's a role model our children need.
Please join me in prayer for Tim Tebow. You know the world and satan would love to see him fall.
Whether the Bronco's win or lose today, Tim Tebow is a winner and a splash of serenity and hope in a world that drains us and has us believing we better not mention Jesus. Thanks, Tim! You're not God, but you are a believer who inspires! May God use you.
Getting ready for the game!
