In a new video, football star Tim Tebow is asking Christians about their commitment to reading the Bible and encouraging them to make it part of their everyday routine.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love coffee too! But it’s interesting to think about how committed we are to morning tasks like making coffee,” Tebow captioned his video.
He continued, “Imagine if we were as committed to being in His presence and His word every morning as we are to coffee. Instead of saying, ‘Before I start my day, I need coffee,’ saying, ‘Before I start my day, I need Jesus!’ Wow, that would be life-changing, and more life-giving than a cup of coffee could ever be.”
In the video, Tebow said, “Literally as we were getting ready to film, we were brewing this coffee, and I could read multiple devotionals in the time that this coffee brewed. And I was just thinking, ‘If we did that every day, we would be brewing coffee for energy and focus, but we would be brewing our soul for what God has in store for our lives.’”
The video was made to promote Tebow’s upcoming devotional, the Mission Possible One-Year Devotional: 365 Days of Inspiration for Pursuing Your God-Given Purpose.
In a post announcing the book, Tebow wrote:
I am so excited to share something that has been on my heart for a while now— the release of my first devotional. With daily devotions written by me and some of the inspirational people I have encountered in my life, including those we have served through the @timtebowfoundation, my prayer is that this devotional will give you 365 days of inspiration to help you live a meaningful life.
This devotional revolves around what a @missionpossiblelife means and what it takes to live it. I hope it will be a tool that helps you spend more time with God, and learn more about Him and yourself every day, so that you can make each day count.
