After accepting the award and expressing gratitude, Tebow took a few moments to have a little fun and make a few jokes. He even teased the host of the event, Christian singer Matthew West.
“Matthew, let’s just be honest, you’ve never thought about running a marathon. And unfortunately, those shorts you wore proved it,” he joked with West, who had been seen in a dancing skit wearing pink shorts.
Following his comedic entrance, Tebow expressed the honor he felt for winning the award alongside various other artists who have had such an impact on Christian culture.
Guys, it is such an honor to be here, especially just around so many legends and inspirations just getting to sit with you Toby Mac and Chris Tomlin so many heroes of the faith that I get fortunate to be around.
