Tebow Mania

09 Jan

Tebow Mania is taking over!   Tim Tebow is a man who is not ashamed of his faith.  Even more than that, he publicly exercises his faith.  Publicly credits God with his success.  It’s a breath of fresh air.  Sure, there are plenty of naysayers out there.  Those who criticize his faith.  Those who claim it’s a bunch of nonsense.  But even many naysayers are now paying attention.  And although many will argue over God’s involvement in Tim Tebow’s success, few would argue he is a man completely devoted to his faith and his God.

My Facebook news feed was exploding with Tebow mania.  People are encouraged and inspired by his story.  And his courage to stand for what he believes.  People are cheering him on.  Shoot, I don’t even like football, but I find myself toying with the idea of ordering a Tebow jersey!

Last night, as I scrolled through the feed, I noticed that believers and non-believers alike are in love with Tebow, his dedication, and his devotion.  So many seem to be hungry for what he has.  So how do you live a life of devotion to God?  How do you become so completely in love with Him, full of faith, full of confidence in His power that it truly changes your life?

We can all have a powerful, active relationship with God.  It begins with the choice to give your life to Him.  ALL have sinned.  But there is hope through the blood of Jesus.  He was the sacrifice, the atonement for our sin so that we can have eternal life.  Giving your life to Him is believing in Him.  Believing in His sacrifice.  His love for us.  Admitting your a sinner.  Confessing to God and accepting His forgiveness and the sacrifice made for YOU.  But it doesn’t end there.  Giving your life to Christ is only the beginning of the journey.  He has so much more for you!  But it takes work.  It takes perseverance.  It takes determination.  And it takes consistency.

You must devote yourself to a life lived for God.

Your devotion and dedication to a relationship with Him must weather the storm.  If you want to see His power at work in your life, you must choose to follow Him.  Everyday.  As you put him FIRST in your life.  As you devote your time to prayer and worship.  As you devote yourself to reading His word.  As you yield to His guidance and direction for your life, you will allow Him to work in your life.  And His power, His love, His faithfulness will amaze you.

I challenge you today, to put God first.  Dedicate your life to Him.  Give Him your heart and complete authority over your life.

One thing’s for sure.  You will never see the power of God at work in your life, if you don’t take the first step!

Tebow mania is great.  He is setting an amazing example.  He is witnessing to millions.  But what I really want, what I really need is the power of God at work in MY life.  Then, I can begin to inspire others the way Tebow inspires me.  Now, where can I order a jersey?
