Johnson’s proclamation of Jesus Christ is not the first time the Eagles have been outspoken in their faith.
Leading the showcase of Bible-believing brothers is quarterback Carson Wentz, who has vowed to play for an “Audience of One.” His mission even led to the launch of AO1 Foundation, which aims to “demonstrate the love of God by providing opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need.”
The faith movement among the Eagles has gone far beyond the locker room prayer.
Along with Wentz, a number of other Eagles have been known to share personal testimonies and journey to new life through their own devotionals on YouVersion’s Bible App.
In a season that is swirling with tension and political punches, it’s teams like the Philadelphia Eagles that are using their platform for things above.
God is working in the hearts of those players, and their unity in Christ, will shine brighter than any division this world may face. Praying that their faith inspires others to look to the One who can save this broken world.
