Tim Tebow is sharing his Christian faith with T-Mobile customers who participated in a Twitter question and answer session with the popular football player.
Tebow, the 26-year-old Christian quarterback, was officially released from the New York Jets roster last April. While a number of media outlets questioned if the NFL player would get his opportunity to play in the league ever again, he has acquired a job as an ESPN analyst and signed on to endorse T-Mobile cell phones.
After surprising fans with a comical T-Mobile commercial where the football player spoke about all of the things he is free to do without a contract, he took over the cell phone company's Twitter handle to answer fans' questions. There, the Evangelical Christian also took the opportunity to share his faith with others.
When one person questioned Tebow about the best gift he received, the famed QB did not shy away from responding with a faithful answer.
"@TimTebow what's the most cherished gift you've ever received," the person questioned to which Tebow responded, "Jesus."
Another person who was celebrating her birthday questioned, "Tim! Recap: favorite book of Bible?"
Tebow responded, "Probably Psalms. Happy Birthday, and God Bless."
Although Tebow answered other random questions that had nothing to do with his faith, many of his responses gave fans some insight into his thought process.
"If you could have one super power what would it be and why," one person questioned.
Tebow responded, "The gift to help heal others."
The football player did not sign off from the T Mobile Twitter account without thanking his fans and spreading God's blessings.
"Thanks everyone for hanging out at the @TMobile #TMoChat," Tebow tweeted. "God bless and have a great night."
Tebow starred in two 30-second commercials during the 2014 Super Bowl where he puts out fires, rides a bull, delivers a baby and highlights the fact that he does it all without a contract. Tebow seemed to poke fun at the fact that he does not have an NFL contract and said the commercials allowed him to show the public a comedic side "that family and friends know better," according to USA Today reports.
