In prison, Paul and Silas sang hymns. An earthquake struck. Prison doors sprang open.
Believing that all the prisoners had escaped on his watch, the Philippian jailer steeled himself to commit suicide. He thought he was a dead man.
But the prisoners had not fled. Now, the jailer wanted what Paul and Silas had. The moment he heard the Gospel, he and his family wanted to be baptized. That night, the jailer went from earthly life to near death to eternal life. “And he rejoiced along with his entire household that he had believed in God” (Acts 16:34b). God was glorified, and His kingdom expanded.
This is all that matters, isn’t it? No matter how long or how short the transformation takes, God desires that every person on Earth should hear the Good News and go from spiritual death to spiritual life.
Each believer’s story is unique. Each life is significant. Like Naija’s.
Naija is a seamstress and the only Christian in her family. She accepted Christ after she attended a Bible listening group in her village. “I still remember the first time I listened to His Word. I felt like God was sitting next to me and talking with me, just as a friend would. I wanted others to know about my experience, so I began inviting them to the group.”
She shares how God tested and fortified her new faith. “My tailor shop was burned down during inter-tribal warfare, and I lost everything. As if that was not enough, my son became critically ill and was on the verge of death. It was the most challenging time in my life.
“I became distraught and asked if these things happened to me because I accepted Christ, but my pastor encouraged me to stay in the Word. The church prayed for me. Not only did He restore my son, but also my business. When my customers found out where I lived, they continued to use my services. I listened to the Audio Bible during this challenging time, which strengthened my faith in Christ.
“Through listening to God’s Word, I have made tremendous changes in my life. I used to be a quarrelsome person. Now, I no longer fight with people but have put on a new life in Christ. Even my father and sisters see a difference in me. I pray they, too, will come to know Christ. I am thankful for the precious gift of His Word I have in this Audio Bible.”
Just like Naija, you and your spiritual journey are significant. Eternally significant.
