Wesley's Notes for Acts 16:30

16:30 Sirs - He did not style them so the day before. What must I do to be saved? - From the guilt I feel and the vengeance I fear? Undoubtedly God then set his sins in array before him, and convinced him in the clearest and strongest manner that the wrath of God abode upon him.

Discussion for Acts 16

    In verse 10 we see how Paul was eager and willing to accept the assignment from God.
  • 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.

    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
