Every where you look on television, they are talking about the Christian NFL player Tim Tebow. If it is not other NFL players making sarcastic remarks, Saturday Night Live felt they had to do a lame skit about the boy.
With all of the numerous athletic role models out there today, Tim Tebow is fresh air to the brain. I think our brains become hazed over, when we accept the narcissistic attitudes of these players who make millions of dollars. So accepting is the public that they allow their own children to configure some sort of heroes out of them.
I have to say these old athletic molds are so flawed that they could not stand under the pressure of a Christian who is walking, talking, and living his life for Jesus Christ. Boy, it shows in their comments. They reek of fear that they might have to give up their large paychecks and Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyles because the public might finally stand up and say “no more”! Satan smells their fear too, and that is why in their comments they try to ridicule Tim. Instead, they look absurd and ignorant.
One football player was commenting about Tim praying all the time. He felt if he had to pray during the fourth quarter, just to win, then maybe he should not be playing football. You can tell he knew nothing of the Christian life. Proverbs 3:5-6 states, “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him. And He shall direct your paths.” Human ways are imperfect and flawed, but God’s ways and direction is perfect. I don’t know, I think I would rather have God tell me what to do on the football field, than a human player!
There is nothing wrong with Tim Tebow! Now, as for the other players, well I can’t exactly say. Satan smells their fear and he would love to drag a few souls with him when he is thrown into hell. So, Satan whispers in their ears and deceives them about the real plan. Can you feel Satan’s hot breath on the back of your neck while easing you closer to the edge of the abyss?
Why not tell Satan to back off before you have to body slam him? Follow Tim Tebow’s game plan and make Jesus first in your life. We could use a few more role models like him in this world!
