NFL Quarterback Kirk Cousins Encourages Thousands to Read the Bible

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins finished reading through the Bible in two years and would “definitely recommend it.”

Cousins posted a photo of his personalized Bible with an “FCA” logo on the top right corner on Twitter last week.

“It took me over two years, but just finished reading through the entire Bible for the first time. Def recommend it!” he wrote. The post has received over 90,000 likes with over 6,000 comments.

One commenter agreed with him writing, “The best book you can read. I’ve read it multiple times, and now I’m reading it with my wife. God is good.”

The football star has not been shy about his faith. Earlier this year, when his team defeated the New Orleans Saints in a stunning victory, he gave airtime to God.

“My faith is important to me, it’s the foundation for my life,” he said in a post-game interview, according to CBN. “Ultimately there’s where I gain my peace and strength. Win or lose today, God’s still on the throne and I take comfort in that.”

Cousins had been under fire for an inability to perform under pressure. But the win showed his perseverance.

“This is a big deal. This is a very big deal,” said the Bleacher Report. “This can’t be emphasized enough. There were many people in football who believed Cousins would never, ever have this signature moment.”

Cousins’ Twitter bio only mentions a reference to Micah 6:8: “What does the Lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy & walk humbly with your God.”

He also tweeted in remembrance of Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash over the weekend. “So sad to hear of Kobe’s passing. We lost a legend,” he said. “Prayer for his family, friends and all of his fans. I believe his Mamba mentality will live on with all those he inspired.”
