Demaryius Thomas vs. Tim Tebow and Jesus

On Sunday past, I was like most average guys who was watching football.  I must admit that I haven't been as a frequent watcher of football, I am not a fanatic. However, my interest in the game was more grown alot more since the NBA lockout.  I particularly like to see the Denver Broncos take the field.  Now before you get me wrong I am not necessarily apart of the Tebowmania but I do respect the fact that he has skills.  But I was a fan of Denver since John Elway era when they won the Superbowl in 97 and 98.  Since Tim Tebow has joined the organization at Denver I know have another reason to watch then and pull for them when they play.

There is alot of noise in the market about Tebow's faith.  Alot of detractors say that he is too boastful sighting Matthew 6:6 as a reason for his error.

    5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
 Now upon looking at this verse,  it would seem that they have a point and they do.  Yet I think that it is to be put in a broader context.  Tim Tebow as I see him isn't seeking to be a hypocrite.  But who am I? I don't know the guy, yet this is my blog and my opinion lol.  Anyway,  it seems that he really loves the game of football and loves Jesus.  He has found away to incorporate the two recognizing that is is because of God that he is where He is.  Therefore, he has no problem with showing people that he is unashamed.

Romans 1:16

New International Version (NIV)
 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.
 So all I can say is Tebow pray and give thanks away!!!  Represent!

As it pertains to title of this blog post that I haven't addressed yet.  Tim Tebow did not beat the Steelers.  The Denver Broncos did!  Football is a team sport.  Imagine that Tim threw the ball and Demaryius Thomas was not there, would the team be in the playoffs now? No, they wouldn't.  The point I am making is that they all had a role to play.  So it is not about Jesus being on Tebow's side more than the Denver Broncos had to operate as a team and the team rallied together and win.  Did Jesus have something to do with it? Sure, He allowed them to be healthy enough to play and allowed their efforts to be successful at that point.  Tim Tebow is good but would be no where without the rest of the team.
