Tim Tebow made some headlines recently when he came to the aid of a baseball fan having a seizure. He prayed over him, and then he miraculously regained consciousness.
Now the man, Brandon Berry, is telling the full story of what happened – and it’s even more amazing than the original media reports. He told The Christian Post:
“I got to the (Arizona Fall League game) before the game actually started, I saw this guy in a Tim Tebow jersey. His name was Daniel. He was talking about God and how He has changed his life. It was a really heavy burden on me because I was really mad at God for all my health issues.”
You know, “It put a burden on my heart because I have always thought I was saved. I had talked to him about Christ. I said, ‘Do you really believe that God helps people?’ He told me a story about his son, who has seizures too. I said we could pray and I rededicated my life to Jesus before the game started.”
In a post-game autograph signing session that day, game watcher, Brandon Berry suffered a seizure and Tebow swopped in, to comfort the man gasping for air.
Daniel Kelly, a devout Christian and former NFL scout, watching it all go down. “That is the first time anything like that had ever happened to me in the years that I have been saved,” he said.
“I said, ‘Brandon, Scripture plainly tells us that no man comes to the Father unless he is brought.’ I said, ‘That is what is happening right now.’ I said, ‘If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, then you will be saved.'”
“I asked if he would like to pray with me to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior to make sure that he is saved,” Kelly continued. “Right there, we both took off our ballcaps and joined hands. I just went ahead and led him in prayer. I said, ‘I confess with my heart that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. Amen. In accordance with the Scripture in Romans 10:9, the Bible says that you are saved.'”
The synchronized moments that happened within the same game is no coincidence in Berry’s eyes because it has opened up his heart and a greater call to do God’s work.
Saying, “I feel like now I want to do more things with my life and I want to serve God more.”
