What must I do to be saved?


There is a group meeting each week studying stories from the Bible. The goal is for each person in the group to learn the story in order to share it with others. For the past few weeks we’ve been learning the story of the Philippian Jailor. They were nervous about learning a long story compared to Zacchaeus that they had learned previously, but they were excited to try acting it out to help them remember. We assigned parts and had props to help. We decided which buildings would represent the places in the story. We were ready to begin. We walked through the story and had the actors learn their parts. As the teacher, I began narrating to make the story flow. After two times through the story, I asked someone to take my role and a lady began telling the story as the actors would jump in with their lines. Of course they love acting out the part when Paul and Silas are beaten and taken to prison, but the most favorite lines are when the jailor sees that all of the prisoners are accounted for after the earthquake and asks, “What must I do to be saved?” Paul and Silas respond, “Believe in Jesus and you will be saved; you and your household.” It was obvious that the group was learning the story. They were excited talking about what they liked, disliked and were learning from the story and would that then they would be able to share it with others because now they know it. Pray for this group to share the stories. Pray for those who hear the stories to commit their lives to Christ and tell the stories to others in hopes that the Gospel will spread exponentially!
