Coincidence or Miracle?

If you don't know, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow led his team to a playoff victory 29-23 over the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday night. Tebow ended the game in overtime by throwing a perfect strike to Demaryius Thomas who ran for eighty yards to the endzone. That happened on the first play in overtime.

If that wasn't miraculous enough for you, how about this? Tebow is a devout Christian. During the 2009 BCS game against Oklahoma, Tebow had written in his eye black, John 3:16. That Bible verse is the basis for the Christian belief. So on Sunday, against the Steelers, Tebow threw for 316 yards. Want more? He averaged 31.6 yards per pass, which by the way is a NFL record. Here's the story. So, message from God? I don't know. But it's an interesting coincidence.

By the way, I'm a Christian. I'm not as devout as Tim Tebow. But John 3:16 is my favorite Bible verse. In case you haven't heard it, here is John 3:16.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."
