Recently a bunch of famous sportspeople have caught the public’s attention because of their faith in Jesus (Tim Tebow, Jeremy Lin). Why?
Joe Carter muses, “Perhaps it’s because these athletes are open and unapologetic about their willingness to share the Gospel. They also keep their priorities in order, winsomely admitting that their life’s callings are secondary to serving the Creator who has called them. To a culture that is both obsessed and disillusioned with fame and fortune, the centered perspective of these superstars provides a refreshingly countercultural witness.”
It is refreshing to see a believer, at the height of fame, keep his head and remain clear about his faith. There is no bells and whistles with him. Before and after he won the US Masters Green Jacket he professed his love for Jesus.
