America likes winners. We’ve been winning since 1776, and that’s why we make a big deal out of every championship game. It reinforces what we are as Americans, and it celebrates the sacrifice it takes to be the best.
That being said, we also love it when people genuinely share their faith. The process of becoming a champion is never easy, and everyone needs something to fine tune their focus and get them through the journey. For many Americans this something is their faith in Jesus Christ.
This genuine display was seen at Super Bowl LIV when the Kansas City Chiefs won, and their CEO, Clark Hunt was given a chance to speak. The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, and Hunt got his chance to speak.
“I want to thank the Lord for blessing us with all these incredible people to bring this trophy home,”
It’s a great statement, fairly plain, but he does get more direct. In October at the City Fest East Texas Men’s Luncheon he told the Tyler Morning Telegraph.
“We want our employees to develop spiritually, in the National Football League. Christ is really glorified. My identity is my faith in Christ.”
“I want to thank the Lord for blessing our family with all of these incredible people.”

In a world where the godless want those who believe in God to sit down and be quiet, it’s always great to such a positive humble display of Christianity on the national stage!
