College Football Player’s Impressive Faith
Holly Rowe succeeded in grabbing a few minutes to interview the popular QB. And one thing that impresses Holly about Jake Fromm is his positive, upbeat personality. In fact, she describes him as the “world’s most positive person.”
And so, Holly asked Jake what makes him that way.
“It’s the Holy Spirit in me,” Jake Fromm of Georgia immediately replied. “I’m trying to live out the most God-like life I can do. I’m trying to influence others and hope they can see Christ in me.”
The touching and faith-filled response caught Holly completely off-guard. In fact, it moved her so deeply she started tearing up!
Next, Holly asked Jake for a goal he had set for 2020. As a young college football player, he could have easily talked about his sporting career.
But again, this devout young man proved he has his eyes fixed on the One who really matters!
“Let’s try to go influence others [and] lead people to Jesus,” Jake Fromm said.
