Click here for This Bible Verse Pushed Philadelphia Eagle’s Hero Nick Foles Back Into the NFL. Foles shared from 2 Corinthians 12:9, detailing how that helped him in his decision to return to the NFL.
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.’” – 2 Corinthians 12:9
Foles Twitter bio simply reads: “Believer in Jesus Christ, husband, father, son, brother.”

The “why” has to do with a band of Eagle brothers who are living for an Audience of One: Jesus Christ. At the center is quarterback Carson Wentz, who brought his #AO1 life motto with him when he was drafted in 2016.
He kinda had to; it’s tattooed on his wrist:
“It was kind of a motto I picked up early in my career, and I finally put it on my body just to live with Jesus as my audience. Whether it is playing football, going to school or whatever I’m doing, I’m doing it for the Lord as my audience.”
