Tebow 3:16

Tebow praying after game

“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.”  John 3:16

This is the scripture displayed on the eye black of QB Tim Tebow.

Many know that I am an advocate for “kill the madness” when it comes to Tim Tebow. I don’t believe that he is this amazing quarterback who can get it done in clutch time. I’m not a fan. I watch the Denver Broncos play and I see a defense that’s a nuisance to their opponents and yet all I hear is high praise for Tebow. I see a team that has scored more than 20 points offensively only 4  times this year (2 of those game there was a Defensive/Special team TD) which to me spells DEFENSE! But for most of the sports commentating world it spells Tebow, Tebow, Tebow. Defense gets an interception….Tebow did it! Kicker makes a 51 yard field goal…Tebow did it! Marion Barber fumbles and Denver recovers…Tebow did it. I’m over it and it’s just a blatant attempt to pump this guy up into something he is not. There are 31 other starting QB’s in the NFL…I would take most of them over Tebow.   
That being said. I know that the Broncos of today are the same Broncos that were 1-4 before Tebow took over. That is where I give Tebow credit for INSPIRING his teammates. Not his physical ability, but his spiritual ability. The ability to make believers out of his teammates to pull together for one another. Trust one another. Have faith in one another.  Tebow is accomplishing what he does on the field, against all odds and against the critics because of one thing….his FAITH.  

Tebow is not afraid to display his faith

After  this weeks overtime defeat  of the Chicago Bears, the quarterback pointed toward the sky from the sideline and said with a smile, "Thank you, Lord" before hugging teammates and coaches.
Moments later he began his post game interview as he always does, by thanking "my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." And he ended it just as he always does, as well, telling the reporter: "God Bless."

One of my favorite wide receivers EVER, Larry Fitzgerald, who is open about his own faith, said this about Tebow "He's had success doing it the right way. He's setting a good example for kids by demonstrating that whatever your religion, if you believe strongly in it, live your life the way you want to live it, don't let society dictate how you live your faith." ..and I agree.

Psalm 37:4 says "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Tim Tebow desires to win….and he is.

Tebow doesnt seem to like the spotlight. i agree with you that its the reporters that are giving him all the credit and it's not just him. Great post.

Interesting blog, it addresses one of the theories about the infatuation of this player.

Great post. I agree! It is the defense that is getting the shaft because of the Tebow shadow. But as much as I don't admire the QB, I admire his faith! He is putting a bright light on my Lord! And that I respect & admire!

Great post Kay!!! I keep telling people that everyone knows and acknowledges that Tebow is an average player at best, but it is his heavenly Coach that makes the plays!! You can doubt the skills, but you can't deny the faith! - Hyder
