English rugby star says playing rugby brings ‘praise and glory’ to God
The Christian Institute
A rugby union international has spoken out about his Christian faith and shared how he believes playing sport helps him to give “praise and glory” to God.
Maro Itoje, the Saracens and England forward, made the comments in an interview with BBC Radio 5 live earlier this week.
He said: “I feel as if everything I have, everything I’ve been given and the position I am in is as a result of God.”
Itoje is preparing to play for his club side Saracens in tomorrow’s final of the European Champions Cup, the top club competition in Europe.
The 22-year-old will also be the youngest member of the British and Irish Lions team on their tour of New Zealand this summer. But despite all of his success on the pitch, he says the glory belongs to God.
“Everything I am doing is not within my power it’s through God’s power. It’s about giving all the praise and glory back to him.”
