It’s nice to know that in the sports world there are more verses in the Bible than just John 3:16 and Philippians 4:13. Yesterday Tim Tebow put the reference for Hebrews 12:1-2 on his eye black.
Hebrews 12:1-2 HCSB
Therefore since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily ensnares us, and run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of God’s throne.
I saw highlights of the game and it could be clearly seen.
The most popular college football player has started a trend in sporting a different verse or passage for each game. I think this is a great way to get the word out. See ‘Tim Tebow’s selected Bible verses’ slide show down the page a bit.
I hope this will help more people take a look at the Bible.
