Acts 16:31-34

31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. 33 At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. 34 The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.

One response to “Acts 16:31-34

  1. They shared the truth of the Gospel and backed it up with Scripture. The truth drew and changed him and his family. They followed in baptism and then looked to serve and to love by treating their wounds.

    He went from being willing to kill himself because Paul escaped to feeding for him and caring for him in his own house.

    The simplicity of the gospel and the power of God to change lives is the wonderful message of this passage.
