So many teenagers are bombarded with messages like “Follow your heart” or “Do what makes you happy.”
Sadly, these statements do nothing to help teenagers develop their faith and instead encourages teens to believe everything revolves around them and ignore a dying world.
So when Tim Tebow had the chance to virtually speak to hundreds of thousands of teens from all around the world, he wasted no time in reminding them why we’re all really here.
He didn’t tell them to seek fame or power or even focus on getting into the best college.
Instead, Tebow challenged teens to become laborers for Christ, reminding them that God tells us the harvest is plenty, but the workers are few.
He went on to inspire teens to help their peers seek the true peace only found in Jesus Christ.
The Christian Post reported:
“There’s a lot of people looking for peace right now,” the former football player said. “All over the world, they’re trying to find in a lot of ways [to find peace]. Actually, they’ve been doing it for a long time, and really they think that it’s money, fame, and power … so many people have searched for it, but none of them actually get it.”
Jesus says that through Him, it’s possible to have peace in this world despite tribulation, Tebow contended, adding: “You will have trouble. There’s a lot of trouble right now. … You can’t get around it.”
But “take heart” is a command and not a suggestion, Tebow said.”
And he’s exactly right.
During these trying days, many people’s sense of security has been ripped away, leaving them feeling hopeless and scared.
It’s no wonder people are accepting Christ in record numbers.
But some are still choosing to shun God and put their faith and hope in the government or the latest self-help trend to fix their life.
Tebow’s reminder to teens is a good reminder for all of us. Now more than ever, as Christians, we have a chance to show people how to find peace in times of suffering by putting their faith and trust in Jesus Christ – knowing God is always good.
And while being a Christian is considered “uncool” by today’s standards, it’s important we stand by our convictions and faith no matter what.
A dying world is looking for something to save them and we can point them to Jesus who paid the ultimate sacrifice on the cross and who will redeem all who put their faith in Him.
Cheers to Tim Tebow for preaching God’s truth without compromise.
Unlike some famous people who only say things that will make them loved by the secular world, Tebow is more interested in teenagers’ souls than scoring popularity points.
And he doesn’t just preach God’s word, he lives it out.
Tebow helps save vulnerable girls from human trafficking through his Tim Tebow Foundation and lives his life dependent on Christ – always giving Him the glory.
If only more celebrities used their power for good!
