Tebow keeps the Word of the Lord at hand.

In college at the University of Florida, Tim Tebow was known for being upfront about his Christian beliefs, writing Bible verses on his eye black. The NCAA has since banned the move, and the NFL has for decades (and imposed a $5,000+ fine), but Tebow, now in his first season with the Denver Broncos, has found a way around it.

During Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans, the young and faithful quarterback wore Christmas-themed Bible verses on his wristband. No element of a player’s uniform should be modified according to NFL policy, but perhaps officials were in the holiday spirit enough to let it slide.

The Larry Brown Sports blog writes:

The verse appears to be Luke 2:10-11, though I could be wrong. If that was his verse for the day, then it’s unbelievably foreshadowing. Luke 2:10-11 says “But the angel said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.'”

So is Tim Tebow the Messiah for the Denver Broncos? Is he bringing the good news causing great joy to all the people? Heck yeah he was. How about leading the Broncos to a 17-0 second half comeback including two fourth quarter touchdowns and a game-winning drive late in contest. Maybe Tebow just knew he was born to keep making special happen throughout his football career.
