Kurt Warner, the quarterback of the Arizona Cardinals, often speaks publicly about his faith in Christ. Here’s a recent statement.
“I believe that the Lord has a plan for each of us that’s better than anything we can imagine–even if that plan isn’t obvious to us at every stage. He prepared me for this over a long period of time–in lower-profile locker rooms and the grocery store and in Europe, through all the personal tragedies and in spite of the people who doubted me along the way,” Warner explained. “Whether I’m a Super Bowl Champion or a regular guy stocking groceries at the Hy-Vee, sharing my faith and glorifying Jesus is the central focus of my time on this earth. And the fact that I now have a podium, I believe, is no coincidence. I want to be a role model for Christ in everything that I do. Living my life for Him and showing people the beauty of that reality is my mission in life.”
Kurt Warner and the Cardinals face the Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow (February 1st) in Superbowl XLIII. Warner was the quarterback for the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV when they beat the Tennessee Titans 23-16.
I’m partial to the Steelers, but I can’t help but like Warner.
Who are you rooting for and why?
Arizona Cardinals running back Tim Hightower and quarterback Kurt Warner are both evangelical Christians who remain open about their faith in Christ. Interesting story from Fox.
