Now this alone takes boldness and courage because contrary to the thinking of many, bold Christians are not the most popular people on the planet. Christ was crucified so why would you think you will be embraced? People think the standard is perfection! Not only don't they not want to hear it, they will scrutinize your life, looking for one moment of weakness or imperfection. Then the test begins.
Tebow is attempting to walk the walk in the public eye but he has three relentless enemies...the world, the flesh, and the devil! The bible is clear.. "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23, so perfection is an impossible standard! What Tim Tebow is trying to do is live a godly life, in an ungodly world, in the public eye, not for self but for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ, His Lord and Savior! For that boldness, I say...Go Tebow!
He may never be the best quarterback in the NFL, but it won't be from lack of effort! He won't win every game and may never get to a championship, but God asks us to be the best we can be with the ability He gives, and never forget to thank and praise Him for the talent, and opportunity He has given us! If you do that, you can leave the results to Him!
There will be haters...but they hated Jesus! Others will say that you don't have the truth...we do! God just wants you to stand for Him on His authority in faith and trust Him! Yes, it's easy to thank Him after a big win, but I believe Tebow will thank Him after a loss just as boldly! That doesn't make him perfect or sinless, it just makes him a true "Ambassador for Christ"
He's been like this since college, but the stage is bigger now, the opportunity larger, and the opposition stronger! Enjoy the good times and prepare for the tough times Tim. I'm praying you will continue to stand strong through it all! Thank you Tim for the refreshing stand for MY Savior, Jesus Christ! May God give me the strength to demonstrate the same courage, boldness and leadership skills in my life as well!
