Acts 16:31 (KJV)
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house."
The account at hand is about a Philippian jailer who was caring for Paul and Silas after a disruption in the city on an account of the message that Paul has given. Paul’s time at Philippi was initially difficult and it seemed as though everything had gone sideways. Their intent was to bring the gospel and as a result caused a dynamic change within the city. Instead, their message was rejected, they were taken before the magistrate, he gave order that they were to be beaten, and they were cast into jail. The scripture says that at about midnight they were praising the Lord and an earthquake shook the prison. All the doors flew open and their chains fell off. The Phillipian jailer upon realizing his dilemma, knowing the prisoners would escape, was ready to fall upon his sword. Paul cried out, “Do yourself no harm. We are all here.” The impact that this had upon the jailer was that he immediately took Paul and Silas and asked, “What must I do to be saved?” Paul then uttered these words, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved and all your household.”
I ask you the question, “Do you think that God can still do the same today; change lives, transform households, and begin new paths for those who would dare to believe in him.
