“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Acts 16:30
One of the sweetest sentences you can ever hear is someone asking for salvation.
The man that spoke those worlds could not help but hear Paul and Silas praying and singing in his jail. He was right outside the door.
Perhaps he wondered how two so badly beaten men could be so happy on the inside, while he was unhappy on the outside.
The earthquake and thought of escaped prisoners pushed him over the edge to the point of taking his own life.
However, Paul was there to offer him a new life.
Paul’s attitude and discipline led this man to reconsider his course. Calling for a light, he asked that wonderful, life-changing question.
Your life needs to reflect the life of Christ. The way you respond to life’s challenges is a factor in how others respond to the call of salvation.
Why would someone want salvation if they see a “Christian” ranting, raving, and cussing because something didn’t go their way.
That’s something much of the world already sees – already does!
People are looking for something different.
