“A woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple fabrics, a worshiper of God, was listening; and the Lord opened her heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul.”
Acts 16:14 NASB
Often we will read in the Bible that it is not what or how we speak that turns sinners to repentance. But it is the work of the Holy Spirit. In this verse it says that Paul’s was speaking, Lydia was one of the listeners, and “the Lord opened her heart”.
1. We must speak the message of the gospel
2. People must listen because the faith comes from hear the Word of God.
3. God is in charged to open people’s heart.
First snow of the year here in Yokohama. Thank you Lord you give us a warm place to live. Thank you that you care for us. Thank you for every season in our lives. Thank you for making our lives white as snow by the forgiven of our sins. In Jesus name I pray.
