Hello everyone in the world!
Today is going to be a shorter post. We have had a really long weekend but it has been worth it! Today we went to Corinth and went up to the top of the mountain where the temple to Aphrodite the Greek goddess would have been. We climbed all the way up to the top and witnessed a beautiful view! We loved the history behind this site and then walked down the mountain to the city part of Corinth. We also went to a museum that showed us different statues and historical artifacts from that time. The museum is located next to a site that is being uncovered and it has many different buildings that are being slowly pieced back together. We witnessed so much history and biblical significance today that we do not know what to do with it. We were able to see where Paul was most likely dragged in front of superiors of the city to be judged in the Roman forum. I loved how we were able to see how Paul walked through Corinth and saw where Paul went.
I personally learned so much from our trip today. However, one aspect that stood out to me the most was how Paul lives out his faith. He went to to biggest places and talked to the biggest names for that time. The whole time he made sure that he was living passionately for Christ and spreading the gospel. This challenges me to look at my life and see how I am sharing the gospel. Am I letting myself be swayed by fear or am I not living fully for Christ the way I should be? I want to live fully for Christ and today while walking through the old streets of Corinth I was reminded by God how I am called to live.
There are some thoughts about today and a list of what we did! Below are some photos of where we went and I hope you all enjoy them. As always, thank you so much for praying for us!
