Thankful For Tua's Witness

Posted on January 10, 2018.

By now you are probably aware that the University of Alabama won the national championship football game over a great University of Georgia Team, who dominated Alabama for much if not most of the game. In fact, Alabama did not lead for even one second of the 60 minutes of regulation play. Even when Alabama came back to tie the game, they could not execute a relatively short field goal to put the victory away. The game was won in overtime. As an Alabama grad, I am very happy my team came out on top. I congratulate my Georgia friends on a great season and a class operation.

For me, the best play of the night came after the game had ended. When interviewed, without any hesitation, Alabama’s true freshman game winning second-string quarterback, Tua Tagovailoia, gave a great witness. On national television before any comment on the game he said, “I’d just like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with Him all things are possible.” Now I truly believe Georgia’s freshman quarterback, Jake Fromm would have also given a positive word for our Lord if Georgia had won, as he has on previous occasions. The lesson we should take away is that we should use the opportunities God allows in our lives to lift up our Lord. Most of us will never play in a national championship game, but we can seize daily opportunities to exalt our Savior.

Thankful for Tua's witness,
Bro. Jerry
