Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is named Super Bowl LVII MVP, a deserving title for someone who led his team to a glorious victory last Sunday night.
Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes
In a game against the Philadelphia Eagles, Mahomes and the Chiefs had to play the maneuver that earned them their win in the AFC Championship. Although injured, the All-Pro quarterback managed to pull through and continued to be the threat his opponents feared him to be.
The Kansas City Chiefs ended the game with a 38-35, with their three-point kick at the final clock setting them up for the win.
Glory to God
Patrick previously shared in an interview his purpose for playing. “I know that I’m’ blessed to be in this position, and I know that I’m’ here for a reason: to glorify him,” he said. “And so it means everything, not only about my football career but all the decisions that I make. And so I have a faith backing. I know why I’m’ here, and it’s’ not about winning football games. It’s about glorifying him.”
Patrick added, “I’m’ on that football game on that football field to glorify Him before everything. And so it’s’ not about winning or losing. It’s’ about going out there and being the best I can in His name.”
And indeed, his MVP award proved that Patrick had done his best for God’s glory.
Meanwhile, the MVP player is not the only one glorifying God in the team. Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt praised God while accepting the Lamar Hunt AFC Championship Trophy. He said, “The Lord has blessed our family in so many ways, including with the best fan base…”
Chiefs Long Snapper James Winchester also points to God as His rock and purpose. “I think it speaks to God’s grace and His faithfulness in my life,” he said. “And always being there for me in the good and the bad. Man, he’s certainly my rock, and I don’t know were I would be, and I certainly wouldn’t be here without Him.”
