The Lord's Super Bowl

Many of you are personally stoked for this years Super Bowl between Da' Bears and the Colts. This Super Bowl is historic, because it is the first bowl where both teams are represented by African American coaches. In the "Christian Post" a recent article highlights that this bowl is also significant because both coaches are professing Christians. It reads...
"The Lord set this up in a way that no one would believe it," said Dungy, according to the Baptist Press. "The Lord tested us a lot this year, but He set this up to get all the glory."

Both Dungy and Smith, who are close friends, gave credit to God after defeating their final opponents to head off to the Super Bowl game.

While Dungy has had more opportunity to share his Christian faith during his five years coaching the Colts, this is Smith's first tenure as a head coach. And he has already made his faith in Christ apparent.
To read the whole article go here. I am not one to make a big deal about sports celebrities, but in light of the visibility of these two men, I am thrilled that they have the opportunity to make such a visible stand for the Lord. To God be the glory... and I mean that no matter who wins (sorry John). :)
