In the four months since Tebow became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy, he has sought to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ as far as possible. Winning college football’s most coveted individual award does not seem to have taken away his focus nor his passion for serving Jesus Christ, and it has provided him with an even broader audience.
“Everybody is telling me I’ve made it,” Tebow told the inmates. “They tell me, ‘Tim, you have success and you’ve made it.’ I’ve won the Heisman Trophy, so I’ve got it made, right? One day, people are going to forget about me. One day, people are going to forget about the Heisman Trophy, the jump pass and the national championship. One day, this [championship] ring is going to rust. There are only four things that are going to last forever: God, his word, people and rewards.
