Acts 16

Paul takes an apprentice in Timothy. This is a good practice for us as well. Do you have someone you are training in ministry? The story of the Philippian jailer is one of my favorites. Paul and Silas are singing after being beaten. The earthquake happens and the prisoners could have escaped. But Paul trusts God not escapes and saves the jailer from killing himself. Imagine the joy of the jailer to go from suicide and despair to eternal life. We are like that jailer with no hope until the message of deliverance in Jesus comes to us. The Holy Spirit uses some unusual circumstances to see the church begun in Philippi.
