Saints Star Demario Davis ‘Grateful for Platform’ to Preach the Gospel

By Movieguide® Contributor

New Orleans Saints star Demario Davis is unashamed about his faith and continues to speak the name of Jesus during his post-game interviews.

After the New Orleans Saints’ game against the New England Patriots, Davis shared his faith again.

“Well, I’ve been preaching at the podium in the past couple times, and they keep asking me to come back. So, I guess I’ll keep on preaching,” the linebacker began.

“Firstly, praise God,” he continued. “What a wonderful game today.”

The Saints secured a dominant victory over the Patriots (34-0) on Sunday.

“I think after a game like that, it’s very easy to praise us, praise our team, but it’s the Lord’s Day,” he went on to say. “So, I’m always conscious to try to deflect that praise or I want to be conscious to deflect that praise to Him.”

“I think over the past week, I’ve just been thinking about how easy it is for us to…mask our hurt and pain, and it’s easy to deflect and watch a game like this and be entertained for an entire day or multiple days. But then we go back to our reality,” Davis continued.

He shared how, while football has blessed him, “There’s nothing inside this game that can help when something happens to us individually and we’re hurting.”

“But where there is help is at the cross,” Davis declared. “See, the cross not only can save you spiritually, [but] what Jesus did and is doing can help you in your current day life, and I think we need to take time to be reminded of that because a lot of us are hurting, and we’re masking it like we’re not.”

The linebacker explained that Sundays remind us of God’s presence in our lives.

“If we…don’t use the Lord’s Day for what is actually there for—to remind us of the Lord—and take time to praise the Lord and make sure our focus is right, we miss a great opportunity,” Davis continued.

“We play this game on Sundays, and it’s really the Lord’s Day,” Davis said at a previous press conference. “And the day we should be worshipping the Lord, a lot of times, players are getting worshipped.”

“I’m grateful for this platform on a Sunday,” he concluded. “Even if I miss church, I get to come in and have church, so praise God for that.

Throughout his NFL career, Davis has vocally shared his faith. Sports Spectrum reports that the Saints star frequently posts about his faith on social media and even wears a “Man of God” headband during games.

Moveiguide® recently reported on Davis:

“What I want to share is, we get to play this game and it’s great and there’s so many amazing things that happened in that game and everybody wants to hear about them, but we could leave this game and go back to being regular people,” Davis expressed. “Regular people are living life and people are waiting for a knock and the word says who Jesus is. He’s knocking at the door, all you got to do is get up.”  

Davis left the press conference with an encouragement to his fans. 

“I just want people to know that if you’ve got stuff in your life, lay it before the Lord. Lay it before the Lord and trust. And be expectant of a knock because the Word says what you have to do is get up and open the door. He’s not going to open the door for you, but He is going to knock. You have to be listening and waiting for the knock…Your blessing, it will be there,” Davis concluded.
