(CNSNews.com) – After his team won the Super Bowl on Sunday against San Francisco, Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis quoted Romans 8:31: “When God is for you, who can be against you?”

“It’s simple: when God is for you, who can be against you? It’s no greater way as a champ to go out on your last ride with the men that I went out with, with my teammates, and you looked around this stadium and Baltimore, Baltimore, we coming home, baby. We did it!” Lewis said when asked how he describes going out as a champion.

Romans 8:31 states: “When God is for us, who can be against us.”

Lewis is retiring from professional football after his team’s 34 to 31 win against the 49ers.
