Tim Tebow has a message for Christians of America: Stand up for your Christian values.
Addressing a crowd of over 2,000 Christians for the God’s Purpose for America event held at the Middle Tennessee State University, the Christian athlete urged attendees to uphold their Judeo Christian values and find their peace and purpose from God.
“What’s amazing when you get up and do something is what God does in your life. We just have to get up and do something,” he said to the Daily News Journal.
Tebow credits God for his sense of stability and his lack of compulsion to live the roller coastal life that many are forced to deal with.
“When your identity is found in Christ, your identity never changes. You are always a child of God.That’s why I always say I don’t have to live the roller coaster that the rest of the world lives,” he explained.
Tebow, who has signed on with the Philadelphia Eagles as a quarterback, said that he always puts his faith first before anything else. This is why he described himself as a Christian who happens to be an athlete.
The athlete, who is known for his various charitable endeavors, recently established the Tebow CURE Hospital in Davao City early this year, which seeks to provide care for underserved children in the southern Philippines. The project was a partnership between the Tim Tebow Foundation and Christian organization CURE International.
“I have always had a great love and passion for the Filipino people. It is so exciting to be able to provide healing and care for these incredibly deserving children halfway around the world,” Tebow, who was born in the Philippines where his parents earlier served as missionaries, said in a statement.
