Christian Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquiao and his wife, Jinkee, recently visited Israel and shared how it impacted their faith.
Christian Today reports that in one photo shared by Pacquiao, he and Jinkee stand with their arms around one another in front of the Old City of Jerusalem.
The caption on the photo says, "Live your life in a way that your children and grandchildren will follow your example and that their lives will bring honor and glory to God. May God Bless you all."
Pacquiao also shared Bible verses along with his pictures of Israel, including Proverbs 23:26 and John 8:47 which states, “Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
In another photo with Jinkee, Pacquiao reflects on God’s love: “Because God is love, He gives us the opportunity to share His love to others. May God bless everyone and have a blessed day.”
Jinkee was also awed by the ancient sites that made the Bible come alive. On social media, she posted her reflections on the Garden Tomb: “The Garden Tomb is an alternative site to the famous Holy Sepulchre for you to consider the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Garden is a beautiful place in which you will discover several things that were all here on the night Jesus died and which match the accounts in the four Gospels. So here we ask you to open the Bible and see what it says about these vital Christian truths."
