The Effective Ambassador-Warrior

Sports Illustrated has a great article about Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow in its current issue. The young quarterback's life illustrates how to be effective in sharing the Christian faith. As writer Austin Murphey put it, "Having covered Tim for three years, I would say he's the most effective ambassador-warrior for his faith I've come across in 25 years at SI."
"Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us" (Titus 2:6-8, English Standard Version).
