Tim Tebow is known for football, his faith, and “Tebowing” at the end zone. From winning the national championship for the Florida Gators, to winning the Heisman Trophy as the first sophomore, Tim Tebow has become a house hold name and role model to many. But with his success, he has faced many trials. Tebow has gone against the cultural norm by standing up for his faith in Jesus Christ, and by vowing to remain a virgin until marriage, and as a result, he has received vicious attacks from the media and the rest of society. In fact, in 2010, “The Tebow Rule” was set in place, which banned NCAA players from putting messages on their eye paint due to Tebow referencing the Bible verse John 3:16 during his games. In his book Through My Eyes, Tebow shares his inspirational story while giving God the glory for seeing him through his hardships.
Like Tebow, many other Christians have gone to battle for the Lord. But as Tebow has testified, although he has faced spiritual warfare, his faith in Jesus Christ has helped him persevere. In the book, The Bondage Breaker, Neil Anderson explains how spiritual warfare can take it’s toll on Christ followers. Anderson gives encouraging steps on how to stay strong, stand firm and walk free with Christ. Anderson emphasizes the importance in knowing the Truth of the Bible and praying for strength and discernment in order to know when Satan is lying and deceiving.
