Since I was a lad, I’ve followed the Pittsburgh Steelers and rooted for them to win. This year was no different though I like Kurt Warner’s voice about being a Christian and his work with the Christian organization, Habitat for Humanity.
I still pulled for the Steelers to win because I had been told that the head coach, Mike Tomlin, is a Christian and that Ben Roethlisberger wore “Playing for Jesus (PFJ)” wrist bands until the NFL told him it was against policy.
I root for Christians nowadays more than I do for a particular team. I guess I’m getting older and it’s getting harder to watch sports at all anymore due to the money and pride and godlessness that is glorified. I simply like to see Christ glorified in ALL things, even football.
When given the opportunity, I like to see Christians say, “I trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He gets all the glory for this win because without Him, this would not be possible.” Though I did not hear it stated after this year’s Super Bowl, I do believe there are some fine Christian men that the Lord has sovereignly placed in the NFL to glorify His name.
