One of the most watched shows of the entire year.
Many people watch for the commercials & some actually watch for the game! ;-) Most of the commercials are about alcohol or are pretty risque. In all honesty I'm pretty sure not many people at all are thinking about their faith while watching the game unless it is something like "God, please let the Seahawks win!"
"When Tebow wore John 3:16 on his eye black to a certain game, over 92 million people looked up that verse on Google. That means that over 92 million people heard the Gospel just because one man took a stand." - Taken from Land of the Risen Sun.
'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.' - John 3:16 (NIV)
Steve Smith, with the Carolina Panthers, has also been speaking more & more about his faith. You can check out his interview with CBN below.
My son loves all sports & typically follows players instead of getting stuck on a particular team. He's been following Russel Wilson for about 3 years & is very excited that the Seahawks are in the Superbowl.
When we were watching the 700 Club yesterday they had a segment on the Seahawks. They were talking about the team & their faith. It was/is so refreshing to hear about athletes that have faith & a relationship with Christ.
You can check out the 700 Club interview with some of the Seahawks below.
Some of the guys suggested that the team tape a video showing their faith & walk with Christ. They began filming during training camp having no idea that they would be playing in the Superbowl! They distributed copies `of the video at games & have free viewing below or on their site. I hope & pray that more athletes will come to know Jesus & not be afraid to show it & share their faith.
Have fun on Superbowl Sunday!
