My thoughts for this week are nice and short, and they come from Acts 16:25-34. This is where Paul and Silas are in prison praying and singing hymns to God, and then there is an earthquake and the doors are opened and chains became loose on all the prisoners. After this we see the jailer is about to kill himself and Paul stops him. The jailer brought them out and asked this, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
The answer to this question is extremely important and we can’t miss it. They give the answer in verse 31, when they answer him, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” The answer to the question is simple, to believe in the Lord Jesus, but we also see before he is baptized he needs to know who this belief is in. This is where we see Paul and Silas tell him the word of the Lord. Salvation is through belief in Jesus, and we know who Jesus is and what Jesus did through the Bible.
I must ask you, what do you believe about Jesus? Is it what the Bible says? Explore the Bible continually, learning more about your savior! We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, by Christ alone, according to Scripture alone, to the Glory of God alone. Amen.
