Tebow! Tebow! Tebow! 

We have all heard the chants and cheers.  How we individually feel about it is dependent on our allegiances.  Whether we are Bronco fans, or just football fans or just Christians affects our perceptions of Tim Tebow.

There are many closed minded and/or skeptical fans that believe the won/loss record of the Broncos with Tebow at the helm is neither warranted nor sustainable. 

Let’s look at this realistically.  Tim Tebow plays for two teams.  He plays for the Denver Broncos as quarterback but more importantly he represents the “Body of Christ” A.K.A. the Church. 

Since Tim T has come into the public eye, there has been more public discussion of Jesus and his teachings than there has been since Prayer was coerced out of public schools.  For a nation that has lost its moral moorings, this is the more important team. 

Nationally, we have effectively changed the First Commandment from, “Thou shall have no other Gods before me” to I shall have no other Gods before myself. 

Individuals now think that they have the divine authority to define morality.  How refreshing Tim Tebow is to have an example that actually submits to the tenants of his faith.  He appears to be a man who lives in the Spirit.

 From the Tebow’s playbook we are told, (Matthew 6:33)  “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

What better forum for Christ than one the field of the Nation’s most popular sport.  And there is no better position for media exposure than quarterback.  With this in mind, could it be divine intervention that has given the Bronco’s wins with Tebow under center?

I don’t think that God is a football fan, but I do know that from history, he will manifest his Glory by creating success from situations that would be deemed impossible by man’s standards.  In Matthew 14:20 Jesus fed 5000 men, women and children with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.

Tebow led the Bronco’s to a win with two completed passes for the game.  Maybe Tebow has a higher calling.  No matter what we think, it will be enlightening to see how this season will progress for this team.  His commitment to his faith makes me believe that he will continue to be rewarded and we as a Nation may be brought back to the fold of his main team, the Body of Christ.

Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!
