“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”Acts 16:30-31
Saving Your Household
What if you could save every person in your family? There isn’t a believer who wouldn’t want that for the people they love. No one intentionally wants to see their family members spend an eternity in hell. However, when we do not share the gospel with them, it is like we are telling them we do not care about their spiritual well-being. In fact, many people spend more time caring for the physical needs of their families than they do the spiritual needs.
Paul and Silas were in prison for sharing their faith when there was an earthquake that shook the foundation of the prison and broke the doors open. The jailer quickly ran to see if the prisoners had escaped, knowing that there could be grave consequences for him. The jailer was so amazed to see Paul and Silas still there that he immediately wanted to know how to be saved. The faith of the prisoner not only saved him but also his household. When we place our faith in the Lord and seek Him, we will have a great effect on our families!
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for your salvation. You rescued me from hell. Help give me courage everyday to share this great gift of salvation with everyone around me! Amen
