VIA| The Denver Broncos — the team considered the “underdogs” going into Super Bowl 50 — pulled off an impressive victory Sunday, but what’s even more awesome is what one player — tight end Virgil Green — had written on his wrist.
Check, check, check it out.
From Charisma News:
Fellowship of Christian Athletes Magazine highlighted Green in the “6 Questions” feature for the January/February 2015 issue, which gives fans an inside look at some of their favorite faithful athletes. After the win against the Patriots that secured the Broncos’ spot in the big game, Green tweeted: “All Glory to God!!!! Once again I Love My Squad!!!! #SB50.”
“Being a Christ follower means: Believing that Christ died on the cross for my sins and putting my full trust and faith in Christ through the good and bad times.
I intentionally bring Jesus into my game by: Praying before every game and writing on my right wrist tape ‘Faith’ and ‘Psalm 91.’
One piece of spiritual advice I’d share with kids is: Never be embarrassed of your faith. People will try to make it seem like being a Christ follower is weird. Like Ephesians 6:10-18 says, ‘stand firm.’”
Here’s a little of what Psalm 91 actually says:
“If you say, ‘The LORD is my refuge,’ and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you…For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;”
How cool is that?
I love it when folks who have a massive public platform aren’t shy about their faith and use it to glorify God.
What’s even better is when these individuals actually seek to be masters at their craft, showcasing the Protestant work ethic and making an example of how Christians should be honoring God in the excellence of their work, while also influencing the culture the Lord has placed them in with the gospel of grace.
We need more Christians in professional sports!
