Jeremy Lin’s Life Verse Tells Alot About Him


New York Knicks’ newest star Jeremy Lin quoted among one of his favorite Bible verse a most fitting passage in Romans on suffering and perseverance.

Perfectly describing his own journey thus far, he cited Romans 5:3-5, which read: “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”
“The Bible talks a lot about how God takes bad situations and tough situations and he teaches us and he uses those times of suffering to draw us closer to him and that’s what I try to focus on during those times,” Lin said during an interview with GoodTV, a Taiwanese evangelical Christian channel.
“For me, when I get knocked down, I really try to get back up and go at it again. I don’t like to give up.”
The 23-year-old point guard has been knocked down quite a few times in the last few years, beginning with his journey into college.
Receiving no athletic scholarship offers out of high school and being turned down by his first-choice school Stanford University, Lin decided after six months of prayer to enroll at Harvard.
