An Exegesis Of Tim Tebow's Winning Streak...

Updated on November 28, 2011

An Exegesis Of Tim Tebow’s Football Winning Streak…

I have hesitated to write about what is taking place with Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos, but enough of the elephant-pregnant-pause on my part because I cannot ignore the sports miracle that is unfolding in the rarefied thin air of Denver anymore. For obvious reasons, I am a fan of Tim Tebow because he is a fellow Christian and had the unmitigated gall of starring in a Pro-Life commercial during the Super Bowl, and moreover, he has the ‘stones’ to speak about Christ Jesus in the open.

I have also seen and read the snarky remarks and mockery in the media by some football players about Tebow’s public ‘props’ to the Christ. I will venture to say had a player paid homage to Allah… these same media and Tebow’s detractors would shut their respective craven mouths. Anyone who is a student of the sport of football would and should know that Tim Tebow should not be ‘winning’ with his current skill set, but to the chagrin and disappointment of even Denver Broncos President, John Elway, Tebow is doing just that.

The secular masses are at a lost about what is taking place with the Denver Broncos with Tim Tebow under center; but those of us who are Christians know what is happening and chalk it up as a blessing from Christ Jesus because He is a ‘rewarder’ of those who diligently seek Him. Case in benign pious point: when Tebow was in college, in Florida, he once placed the Scripture, John 3:16 under both his eyes… resulting in tens of millions of people seeking the meaning of said scripture (For God so loved the world… that He gave His only begotten Son [Jesus]… that whosoever believeth in Him… should not perish, but have everlasting life). The fact that many Americans did not know this scripture by heart was shocking to my brother and I because we wrongly assumed that everyone, like many in the Caribbean, knew this scripture, along with the 23rd Psalm. Nonetheless, I am not going to look the gift horse in the mouth and I am thankful that someone like Tim Tebow is willing to noise his beliefs and faith in Christ Jesus.

It is true that Tim Tebow is not the only Christian in the National Football League, but Tim Tebow seems to be the most vocal, and as the scripture aptly says, ‘… no one places a candle under a bushel….’ And it must be noted that win or lose in this life, Jesus will still be praised by Tebow and others like myself because, as much as success in this world, be it in football or elsewhere, is welcomed… the reward we Christian look forward to most cannot be articulated: Eyes have not seen, ears have not heard, nor has it entered into the hearts of men… the wonderful things God has prepared for they that love Him!” (1 Corinthians 2:9). This reward is what compels we Christian to constantly pray and try to live the life that is simpatico with Christian ideals.

In the interim, I will sit back and watch in amazement, and not be ignorant, apparently, as the masses are, as to why Tim Tebow, through Christ Jesus, defies the man-made odds and win football games… knowing that Jesus can and is interceding in something as mundane as football… when you compare the sport to the grave issue of choosing where one will spend his or her eternity - in a literal Heaven or a literal burning Hell.

      I don't watch sports. I am just learning about Tebow from hubpages, and from a blurb I saw in the book store. God is amazing and blesses those who love Him.

      Amen Laurathegentleman! I hope that Tebow exposes those who watch football to Jesus and the Christian faith and thanks for reading the Hub.

      This is a great Hub! I don't follow football, but Tim Tebow is one of the few players I am familiar with. I love his message and the fact that he isn't afraid to speak out for Jesus Christ, and I hope he continues to do so!
