Tim Tebow and Faith
The one important aspect of our faith is that we live it, we show it to others, we speak of it to all. We do so with confidence, not worrying about whether or not someone is going to make fun of us or call us names, but simply because we know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ died for our sins and lives and reigns to all eternity.
Faith in Christ is not just something we pull out for 60-minutes on a Sunday morning; it is an every moment of our life experience. Tim Tebow tries his best to live his faith in Christ throughout his life. Sadly, he is mocked for it. And for those who claim they mock him because of the expectations heaped on his head coming out of college, they can stop that talk right now. Tebow is mocked because he does not conform to the ‘quiet Christianity’ understanding of the world where we minimize our beliefs to make others who reject Christ happy.
But as Christians, God never promised us or Tebow a rose garden. He promised us a world where sin and hatred and vileness rule the day. He gives us His Holy Spirit and emboldens our faith to live our days in hope and joy for a better time.
Now, if the Denver Broncos weren’t putrid and had drafted decent players the past few years, Tim Tebow would possibly be viewed less harshly by the media and his opponents. However, the Broncos are terrible and the Tebow issue is only magnified more.
