Tebow's Eye Black for the Sugar Bowl?


Sugar Bowl: Ephesians 2:8-10 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


What do you think it'll be? John 3:16 again, or something else? One thing is for sure, Tebow has surprised us every game this season.

Below is a nice story on Tebow and his eye black and a recap of all the verses he has worn to date:

Bible verses on the eye black he wears for games.

Tebow’s choice for last season’s BCS championship game against Oklahoma, John 3:16, drew a reported 93 million Google hits that day.

"I was just putting on my eye black and I realized that if I put a Bible verse on it, somebody might actually get something out of it," Tebow said Monday. "It’s just gained more and more momentum and steam, more and more people have recognized it, and now it’s just got a life of its own."

Tebow is undecided on what he will be wearing in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Friday night, although he’s not lacking for advice from fans.

"I really lean toward something that’s going through my heart," he said. "If there’s something going through my heart that week, or whatever it is, I think people understand more and learn more from it."

Here are the verses Tebow has worn over the past two seasons:

2008

Regular season: Philippians 4:13 — "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

SEC championship game, Dec. 5 vs. Alabama: John 16:33 — "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."
