NCAA Football Players across America are spreading the Gospel of Christ in any way they can. It is obvious that they must have read in the Bible that:
1 Timothy 4:8 – For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
This should be an example for all parents and their children. Do not let sports be your entire life. Practice and try and get a scholarship to pay your education, etc… but make sure that Jesus Christ is the center of your life.
NCAA College Football Players Pursue Relationship with Jesus Christ
Alabama Crimson Tide may have bested SEC rivals Georgia Bulldogs on the football field Monday night with a 26-23 win in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, but players from both teams have revealed that they found victory in Jesus Christ.
Freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa boosted the Atlanta Crimson Tide to victory over the Georgia Bulldogs, making a powerful 41-yard pass to beat Georgia in overtime. When interviewed by ESPN, the rising star didn’t take glory for himself — he gave it to God.
When asked what his victory means to him, Tagovailoa balanced the elation of his victory with humble thanks to God.
In the annual college football profile edition of FCA Magazine, a number of football players went on record to speak about their passion for Christ.
Georgia tight end Jeb Blazevich told FCA about the importance of spending quality time with Jesus.
“I pursue a relationship with Christ through spending quality time with Him,” he said. “Without spending time every day with Jesus, listening and talking to Him, I can’t be the man I want to be.”
Georgia safety Aaron Davis says the way he lives his life is indicative of his relationship with Jesus.
“I passionately pursue a relationship with Christ through the way I live my life,” Davis said. “I feel like if I can serve as many people as I possibly can and study the Word, then I can continue to grow in my relationship with Him.”
Alabama defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick said reading his Bible helps his relationship with God.
“I pursue a relationship with God by spending time in His Word and being in His presence,” the athlete said. “He is a relational God, so forming a relationship with Him is most important to me.”
Alabama Punter J.K. Scott revealed just how passionate he was by reflecting on how much Jesus has done for him.
“Jesus left Heaven—perfect communion and happiness with the Father—and died for me, just for a shot that I would even consider Him. Why would I not,” he said. “Why would I hold on to what I think is my life when I really have nothing without Him?”
“All glory goes to God,” Tagovailoa said. “I can’t describe what He’s done for me and my family. Who would have ever thought I would have been here, right now in this moment. So, you know, thank God for that, and I’d just like to thank my teammates and coach Saban for giving me the opportunity.”
