First there was Tebowmania. Then there was Linsanity. Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin became sports sensations because they win and because their strong Christian beliefs endears them to fans. But is it more to it than just mere faith? Is the man upstairs using these two athletes to show that he will grace those who believe in him?
Let’s take a look at some similarities between these two players.
1. They both wear Blue, Orange, and White for starters
2. They both are very humble and take no credit for their talents. Lin recently stated in an interview:
“I’m not playing to prove anything to anybody. That affected my game last year and my joy last year. With all the media attention, all the love from the fans, I felt I needed to prove myself. Prove that I’m not a marketing tool, I’m not a ploy to improve attendance. Prove I can play in this league. But I’ve surrendered that to God. I’m not in a battle with what everybody else thinks anymore.”
Tebow recently stated:
“Just because you may have athletic ability and you may be able to play a sport doesn’t make you any more special than anybody else, doesn’t mean God loves you more than anybody else.”
Seeing how much these two athletes give praise to God and also seeing how miraculous their seasons have gone so far, including Tebow’s miraculous 3:16 stats he put up against the Steelers are even more intriguing. So is JC the real VIP in sports right now? Leave a comment
