Well-known Christian athlete Tim Tebow urges Christians to stand up for Biblical values in America amidst troubling and challenging times happening around us.
Tim Tebow Encourages Christians
In a video shared last year by the former professional football player, he encouraged Christians to strengthen their faith. He noted how many people in the Bible struggled as well but persevered because of God’s help.
“This could be your time. That breakthrough could be tomorrow, or it could be next year,” Tim captioned in the video. “But, you have the opportunity to turn however you’re being tested into a testimony. So many heroes were wounded deeply before they were used greatly!”
In the video, Tim further explained the lesson one could get from the characters’ lives in the Bible.

“Bible believers, when we look at the Bible, and we see a lot of the heroes. A lot of times they truly were wounded deeply before they were ever used greatly,” he pointed out.
Then he continued, “So maybe you’re going through a time in your life where you feel like you’ve just been wounded greatly. It hasn’t been your year, hasn’t been your day — you just don’t feel like this is your time.”
A Time To Grow
With a turnabout, he remarked, “But this could be your time for learning. This could be your time for growing. This could be your time for adapting, this could be the time that is a test for you. But tomorrow it gets to turn into a testimony.”
Tim urged Christians to trust God despite uncertainties that lie ahead. He said, “You never know what he is preparing you for. So many times in the Bible, when we look at the heroes, there were times in their life where if they stopped, if they quit, if they said, ‘No, God, I’ve had enough,’ then they would have missed out on the most impactful, most influential times of their life.”
Further, the former Denver Broncos quarterback highlighted God’s promise that awaits if one never quits.
“Maybe that is the next step for you, maybe that is tomorrow. Maybe that is next week, maybe that is next year. But when we quit, we will never know what we missed out on. We will never know what’s in store for us,” Tim said.
“Because maybe that breakthrough is coming tomorrow. Maybe it’s next year. Maybe you have a little bit more time going through a hard time in your life. But I can tell you this: We get to trust an unknown future to a known God, because we know how much he loves us. We know what he did for us in sending his son. He gave his best for us.”
Stand Up For Biblical Principles
And finally, Tim urged Americans to stand up for Biblical principles and values regardless of the difficulties America is going through.
“When we remember that, then we can have trust in the character of our God. Because we know how much He loves us. That’s how we get through the tough times,” he added.
He then concluded at the end, “Right where you’re at, whatever you’re doing, whatever you’re going through, He loves you. You were enough for His Son to die on the cross. That’s how much you’re loved. Hold onto that in your time of need.”
