What A Testimony!

Tim Tebow is my favorite football player... ever! He's an outstanding guy who hasn't let his superstar career get in the way of his relationship with his personal Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Please... if you have 12 minutes to spare today... watch this video! It's an amazing interview that's well worth your time!

For the National Championship Game in 2008, Tebow wore the verse "John 3:16" in the paint under his eyes. During that game 94 million people google searched "John 3:16"! How awesome is that?! I think I'm gonna go buy a "John 3:16" bumper sticker for my truck!

When asked about a comment from a teammate to "curb his references to Jesus Christ and his faith", Tebow responded:

"If you're married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife 'I love her' the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and every opportunity?"

"And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ is that it is the most important thing in my life. So any time I get an opportunity to tell him that I love him or given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I'm gonna take that opportunity. And so I look at it as a relationship that I have with him that I want to give him the honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity. And then right after I give him the honor and glory, I always try to give my teammates the honor and glory."
"And that's how it works because Christ comes first in my life, and then my family, and then my teammates. I respect Jake's opinion, and I really appreciate his compliment of calling me a winner. But I feel like anytime I get the opportunity to give the Lord some praise, he is due for it."

I love this guy! God bless Tim Tebow!
