so much bigger than football.

Does it matter who won the football games tonight? Or if the Broncos won in overtime last week? Or who will win the Super Bowl? Does it really matter? 

From an eternal perspective, no. 

From an eternal perspective, what matters is that God is glorified. 

If football gets people talking about the gospel, then that matters. Not the football games or the players themselves - but the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

It doesn't matter who you are. We are all nothing without Christ. 

Tim Tebow's platform has gone from the Gators to college football fans to Broncos fans to all of the sudden the WORLD.

What is my platform right now?
My family and friends? My basketball team? Raleigh, NC? This little blog? 

Whatever my platform is - I need to be glorifying God. Through good times, bad times, confusing times, ALL times. It is truly the only thing that really matters.

Did anyone else see this commercial tonight?


THAT is what matters.
