‘He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life’ Tim Tebow’s Story
Former NFL player Tim Tebow recently shared the mission that God gave him to accomplish at the 2022 Passion Conference.
“Every single one of us has been given a mission by God, for God, and that mission is possible,” the 35-year-old shared.
“You see on the macro, I believe every single one of us has the same mission: To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. … But, I also believe that every single one of us, we have a micro-mission — something that God has designed exactly for you,” he added.
Tebow, who first rose to popularity for displaying his Christian faith as the star quarterback for the University of Florida Gators, also quoted Ephesians 2:10: “For we are His workmanship (or masterpieces), created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared before for us to walk in.”
“We have a micro-purpose, something designed exactly for you, that is only for you because before you were ever born, the God of this universe wrote a poem that in Christ Jesus is a masterpiece for good things for you to do,” Tebow said. “And guess what, your poem is just for you. It’s only for you. There is something so unique and special that is just for you. In Christ Jesus, you’re a masterpiece.”
Tebow, who founded the Tebow Foundation, said that he first discovered his mission during a trip to the Philippines. He met a boy born with both his feet backward. Due to his disability, the boy was seen as “cursed” by his village.
“God opened my eyes and touched my heart, and I believe on that day, God gave me a micro-mission to fight for every little boy and girl around the world like him, to fight for every single person that the world has looked past, to fight for every single person that other people say, ‘They don’t matter.’ Because to God, everyone matters,” Tebow declared.
“I think in life when we are going through great storms, we don’t always question the power of God — we question the love of God,” Tebow said. “‘Does He really love me enough to get me out of this storm?’ Most of us would say: ‘Yeah, He can get me out, but does He love me enough to get me out?’” . . .
Tebow said that God’s love is best displayed with Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf.
“He’s our Savior. He’s our Peace. He’s our Ransom. He’s our Mediator. He’s our Forerunner. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life,” Tebow said.
“He rescued me and I have a home in Heaven where I will live forever one day,” he added. “The Church is not a museum for good people; it’s a hospital for the broken. And I was broken and I needed a Savior. I needed a Healer. I needed a Rescuer. Jesus came through… When you understand the gravity of what you’re saved from, you also understand the depth of the love of God for you.”
Tebow ended his talk by calling his audience to share the Gospel with friends and family and accept Jesus as their savior.
