Ready To Speak Up

Posted on February 7, 2018.

This past Sunday Night an amazing thing happened after the Super Bowl. There was an outpouring of sincere praise to God. Doug Pederson, the head coach of freshly crowned Super Bowl LII champions the Philadelphia Eagles, gave glory to God in his reaction to the historic victory. "I can only give the praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for giving me this opportunity. And I'm going to tell you something. I've got the best players in the world, and it's a resilient group," Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, who was named the game's Most Valuable Player, saw God's hand in his path to the final. He had considered retiring from football before the season but God opened the doors for him to play as a back-up and then as a starter. Tony Dungy, former head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and of the Indianapolis Colts, said in a post-game interview, according to NBC Sports: "Nick Foles told me last week in Philadelphia he thought the Lord had him here for just this time. He knows this is Carson Wentz's team, but he was ready to go tonight, and he played like a champion." "All glory to God," the MVP said. Praising his Eagles teammates and coaching staff, he added: "To be here with my daughter, my wife, my teammates, this city ... we're very blessed." Foles has not kept his Christian faith a secret, describing himself on Twitter as a "believer in Jesus Christ, husband, father, son, brother." The 29-year-old star athlete has said in the past that after his football career comes to an end, he is thinking of becoming a pastor. At the end of the day, The winning Coach, Game MVP, and a T.V. announcer had spoken boldly for our Lord and Savior. When they were given the chance before millions of people they spoke up for Jesus. I challenge you to take the opportunities God places before you. It is time for all true believers to speak up for Jesus.
