  1. One of the best posts I’ve ever read. Straight forward and full of zeal. Thanks for sharing! One of our earnest prayers is that, God will continue to destroy the gods in our lives so that we can always focus on Him and rely on Him. 🙂

    Thanks also for praying for me and for my family during the earthquake last week. I just got the net connection normalize today. We are safe and sound in God’s hand though we are saddened by the lives lost in our sister city (Gihulngan, Negros). We pray for other believers there and that my country will come back to the Lord. God bless 🙂

    • Thank you very much, Joyce, for stopping by my site and for your nice comment. 🙂 I am happy that your internet connection is up and running again. BTW hope to see you soon one of these days in the queen city of the south! God bless you richly. 🙂

    • Yes, I love the verse “for in Him we live and move and have our being”. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and reading & appreciating a number of my posts. It is a great encouragement. God bless you!

  2. This story really rings with me because I love the way Paul uses their beliefs to create a bridge to Jesus while unfortunately many believers of today want to have nothing to do with other beliefs. God creates a Jesus-shaped hole in our hearts that can’t be filled with anything else and it’s interesting to see how that hole is manifest even in religion. Nice post.

  3. Well said, and an excellent photograph to accompany it. Appropriate that the ruins of the Greek glory are on the hill and behind those ruins the sun. Metaphorical? You did well.

  4. My mistake. The moon, not the sun. Alas, I am too old for this. Still, it reminds me of The Lord of the Rings as the hobbits are entering Mordor, going into darkness, and they look up and see through a brief gap in the clouds a star. There is something higher than man’s glory.
