Your proper hand has saved me, O Lord – Psalm 137(138):1-three, 7-eight.
‘He and his complete household rejoiced that he had grow to be a believer in God.’
These words finish the story of the conversion of the jailer assigned to guard Paul and Silas. The story starts with the gaoler prepared to suicide since the prisoners have escaped. But the proper hand of God becomes his salvation when Paul and Silas persuade him and his household to think in Jesus. What an unbelievable transformation!
He accepts Jesus and his faith promptly becomes a liberating expertise. He and his loved ones are baptised into the faith neighborhood with out delay. In the midst of these developments he finds time to bathe the wounds of Paul and Silas and set meals ahead of them.
The components of healing and hospitality are interwoven with this man’s initial expertise of faith. They continue to sustain just about every neighborhood that grows out of faith in Jesus, offering consolation and inspiration to continue walking the way to the Father.
