Tim Tebow sprung into action again after a baseball game with the Arizona Fall League this past Tuesday. As the former NFL quarterback was in the middle of signing autographs, an onlooking fan seemed to be experiencing a seizure in the stands. Tebow instantly tended to the man by going over and praying for him until medics arrived.
Tebow signing autographs. Fan has what looks like seizure. Not moving. Tebow puts hand on him and says a prayer. Man breathes. WOW.

This isn’t the first time we’ve been encouraged by the athlete’s faith in action. Just a couple of months ago, we shared a similar scenario that took place when Tebow led a prayer mid-flight for an elderly man suffering a major heart attack.
It’s always pretty awesome when we get to see believers with a platform make a consistent display of what it looks like to live out our faith. It even challenges us to think, “Shouldn’t this be the daily life of a Christian?” Praying boldly and being the hand of Christ at pivotal moments isn’t going the “extra mile.” It’s the call of every person who bears the name of Jesus.

Do you act in faith as much as you feel you should in a public crisis? If not, what do you think is stopping you?
