The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Marcus Johnson shared a testament to that on Thursday with a photo of him being baptized in the pool at the team’s Charlotte, North Carolina, hotel prior to Thursday night’s game against the Panthers.
Surrounding him are more than a dozen of his teammates with their heads bowed and hands locked.
“First time being Baptized!” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “Corporate Worship is a beautiful thing!! Cleansed & Reborn in JESUS name!!”
In his excitement for new life, the footballer included an emoji of a mega-phone and praying hands.
