Acts of the Holy Spirit

Have you said yes to Jesus?

At Philippi, the magistrates imprisoned the apostle Paul and Silas and intended to execute them. At midnight, Paul and Silas sang and prayed. God answered by opening all the prison doors. Then, the jailor rushed to Paul and asked, “What must I do to be saved?” (Acts 16:30). Paul’s instructions, coupled with the power of the Holy Spirit, resulted in the immediate conversion of the jailor and his family.

So what was the “word of the Lord” that Paul shared? Likely, it was, “Count yourself dead to sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:11). The jailor knew that he was free to never sin again. Now, he could live a victorious life in Jesus.

God’s design is to completely destroy sin. Is this testimony of victory yours? If not, will you do this today? If you’re not converted, sin is ruling in your soul. But, if you’re born again, you have the freedom to no longer sin.

Will you receive Jesus to live and rule in your soul, and to obey him in everything?
