Discussion for Acts 16

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    God was the protector and guide of Paul and Silas. He saw them through the thick and thin of their missionary journeys. The Holy Spirit was in hand to tell them where to go and not to go. Wherever they went, coverts were won. Even when jailed, God came to the rescue. It is the same God today and we must look up to him for daily guidance. In turn, we should spread the gospel to lost souls.
  • Ray321

We must follow his comments for to grow in Grace not for Salvation. We are seal by the Holy Spirit of God in Salvation, we cannot loose it. Praise God

    Amen. Obey and receive. If you believe on Him you will follow His commandments. You cannot just believe and be saved. The Apostles They who said this vers Knew that those who truly believe on Jesus's name will repent and follow the righteous way to The Father which Jesus taught. Read The book of Matthew chapter 5 for the information in what Jesus said and taught. I love you all. May The Good Lord bless you this day and forever as your walk in Him continues. Amen.-Tahj
