Acts 16:11-15

LYDIA AND HOUSEHOLD BAPTISED

“One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia…She was a worshipper of God”. Acts 16:14, NIV.

Yesterday, we explored the significance of belonging to the body of Christ. We concluded that each of us is formed to belong to God’s family. In school, you were part of a student body. Elected political leaders form legislative bodies. Now, you are a part of a significant part of God’s body. When God calls the Church “the body of Christ”. He has a human body in mind where every part is interconnected and interdependent. In today’s passage, we see Lydia and her household incorporated into the body of Christ through baptism after responding to the message of salvation preached by Paul (Acts 16:14). This means that those to be baptized must have first experienced a new birth.
It is also noteworthy that Lydia immediately showed hospitality. She persuaded Paul and the team members to consider staying in her house (Acts 16:15). She showed an example of how believers should serve the body of Christ. It is important for every Christian to know that in heaven, we are going to serve God forever. Right now, we can prepare for that eternal service by practicing it on earth. Have you experienced a genuine salvation? If so, are you demonstrating it by genuinely serving the body of Christ? Is your home open for use by the Lord? Think on these things today and make a fresh commitment.
