Russell Wilson doesn’t just tweet Bible verses to his million followers, he is genuinely seeking after God’s will, says former Super Bowl winning NFL player Eugene Robinson, Robinson, who also played for the Seahawks when he was in the NFL, also says the Seattle Seahawks quarterback is rock solid in his faith.
Robinson, who has spent time with Russell Wilson was asked his impression of the quarterback by the Biblical Recorder:
Wilson is a perfect example of someone having a strong father and mother. I had the privilege of doing their chapel service. I’m telling you right now that young man is rock-solid in the Lord. Not saying that any of us have it all together, but he wants to know God, wants to know what God wants him to do. That’s the first thing you notice. Having positive role models (father and mother) around you helps you navigate the waters just a little bit better. It’s so important to have mentors in your life, no matter who you are.
The Christian athlete and boyfriend to singer, Ciara has always been passionate about his faith and giving back. He spends Tuesday’s at the Seattle Children’s Hospital spending time with children battling illness. When girlfriend Ciara is not busy she usually joins the quarterback on his visits where he is known to pray for the children as well as bless them with gifts.
