Nibble of Bread: Believe like Paul

October 23, 2012

Acts 16:30-31

Then he brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”

This verse is taken from the story of the jailer being terrified after a massive earthquake shook the prison Paul and Silas were being held in. The jailer was convinced Paul and Silas were worshipping the one true God. In dreadful fear, he wanted one thing. Eternal Salvation.

In order to get that Paul told the jailer to just Believe in Jesus and he will be saved. I want to pose the question, does Paul’s view of belief in Jesus look like yours today?

Paul has been beaten multiple times, imprisoned multiple times, faced angry mobs many times, and worked to exhaustion many times, to list a few. Although we live in different times then Paul, is our belief in Jesus worthy of Christ?

I know that this word ‘believe’ in the above text is more than a mental thought. It is a way of life.
