Something about an Easter sermon with a side of shade in it that really gets the blood moving.
Tim Tebow, the fromer NFL QB turned baseball minor leaguer, took a random shot at his old team over the weekend, and it was quite hilarious.
“What we are talking about is the greatest trade in the history of the world. There have been some really big trades. The Red Sox traded Babe Ruth [to the Yankees] for $100,000. How’s that for a trade?
“Wayne Gretzky was traded for a couple of scrubs. How’s that for a trade?
“I got traded to the Jets. How’s that for a trade? That didn’t work out for anybody. When’s the last time a Jets trade worked out? Anyway, that’s beside the point.”
The 32-year-old former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback spent one year with the Jets in 2012, but as a fullback and tight end. He did, however, complete 6 of 8 passes for a mere 39 yards and 0 touchdowns. He added 102 rush yards on 32 carries.
“[Accepting Jesus Christ as your savior] is the greatest trade in the history of the world. Why is this the greatest trade? You need to understand this, so you can understand the old versus the new. Do you know what the old is? Sin, dead, darkness, bondage, separation, lost, baggage. Do you know what the new is? Righteousness, alive, light, freedom, united in Christ, found, child of God, purpose, son, daughter, home in heaven, paid for. That’s what the new is.
“So you know what? We need to compare. When we accept Jesus for what he did on the cross in rising from the dead, we go from sin to righteousness, dead to alive, darkness to light, bondage to freedom, separation to united in Christ, lost to found, baggage to purpose, slave to son and debt to paid for. That’s what the trade is. And you want to understand the best part of the trade is that it’s free, is that it’s gift. It’s not about how good we are. It’s not about how much money we have. It’s not about what we bring to the table. It’s what Jesus did on the cross. It’s the free gift of eternal life.”
Tebow has played minor league ball since September 2016.
The Jets haven’t reached the postseason since 2010.
