Soccer, Tim Howard… and Christ

Craig HueyReality Alert

During the World Cup match in Brazil, against Belgium, soccer star goalkeeper Tim Howard caught America’s—and the world’s—attention as he kept hope alive in the game by making a record-breaking 16 saves.

Tim Howard is not ashamed of the gospel. He says, “The most important thing in my life is Christ. He’s more important to me than winning or losing or whether I’m playing or not. Everything else is just a bonus. All praise be to God.”

And his heart? “Today, I am blessed to be living a dream. And yet, if it all went away tomorrow, I know I would still have peace. That probably sounds crazy to most people, but that’s the kind of peace Christ gives. It is rooted in His love, and it surpasses all understanding. You can experience this same sense of love and peace too. All you have to do is ask for it.”
