NFL Players Give Away Bibles To Fans

Galatians 6:9 And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

Seven NFL players teamed up with Athletes for Charity to spread the truth of the Gospel during the Christmas season.

The Christian Post reports that Don Carey and Andre Fluellen of the Detroit Lions, Ryan Lindley of the Arizona Cardinals, Kawann Short of the Carolina Panthers, Kevin Pamphile and Alterraun Verner of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Reggie Walker of the San Diego Chargers bought Bibles and gifted them to others for Christmas.

This is the third years of the Bible giving event.

The players focused on the purpose of the event when asked about their participation rather than themselves.

“I believe that nobody has a greater or lesser platform in the eyes of God. That man who works at a factory that witnesses to his coworker, or that woman who works at a salon who prays for her customers, is just as important as I am,” Fluellen told CP. “God has blessed me with a gift, just as God has blessed everyone with a gift. We are all responsible for using that gift to show God’s love to others.”

“God placed us here for a reason. Use the time you have on this platform to spread His Word,” Verner told CP. “Being saved isn’t supposed to be exclusive to just us. It’s our job to be disciples and spread the Word to others.”

The Cardinals’ Lindley summed up the definition of success of the event.

“As long as one soul is touched and changed by what we do this holiday season, I will view this as a success,” Lindley told the Christian Post.
