Denver Broncos Quarterback, Tim Tebow, was taken to task recently by Jake Plummer for his outward display of faith in Christ. The ESPN radio interview caused quite a stir when Plummer said, “I think he’s a winner and I respect that about him. I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, then I think I’ll like him a little better.”
Is it right for Christians to make their faith such a prominent part of their lives? Should Christians try to share their Christian experience with others? What can we learn from Tebow’s commitment to honor Christ?
Tebow responded this way: “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.”
Tim Tebow understands that Christians are called to share faith. In fact,on any given Sunday, Christians gather together to study the Bible, share faith, offer encouragement and find inspiration. These are the elements of the Christian faith that make Church important to people like Tim Tebow.
