One of the greatest acts of love and evangelism is to learn to speak in ways that connect deeply with the hearts of others. Even if you aren't a linguist, you can learn to seek ways to communicate God's love in unique ways.
The Philippian jailer had seen it all - all but an example of sacrificial mercy. So when Paul and Silas saved his life through unbelievable mercy, his unbelief came crumbling down. This is the third episode in a series looking at three separate stories from Acts 16.
Some people don't need an explanation; they need a life-changing, God-powered experience.
In Acts 16, we read 3 stories: 3 different people, 3 distinct backgrounds, 3 specific needs. Knowing these needs helps us better know how to pray and act as we partner with God in the greatest work of all – the saving of people. God doesn’t need us to partner with Him, but He invites us nonetheless. Welcome to Part 2 of our study.
(Note: We gleaned some helpful study from Martyn Lloyd Jones and Tim Keller. And my wonderful summer intern, Peyton Miller, found helpful words for us to use.)
