Acts 16:25-34

JAILER AND HOUSEHOLD BAPTISED

“Then immediately he and all his household were baptized”. Acts 16:33, NIV.

The gospel remains the power of God for the salvation of mankind according to Romans 1:16. Today’s passage shows us how Paul and Silas refused to be deterred by the chains on their hands and legs from sharing the gospel in the dark dungeon of the prison. Through this singular act, God’s message of salvation came to the jailer. Seeing the miraculous intervention of God in breaking loose the shackles on Paul’s legs and hands, he requested, ‘Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’ Paul gave him the condition for salvation: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). The jailer did not only believe, he brought his entire household to salvation and they were all baptized.
Baptism is the open declaration of the internal experience of salvation; it is a way of declaring to the public that we are no longer serving the world; that we have shifted allegiance to a new Master, Jesus Christ. There are several people who are yet to identify with Jesus through the process of baptism. The church must give opportunity for such people to do that. We must visit prisons, hotels and hospitals with the purpose of sharing the gospel of peace. This is one of the ways of helping people to share the joy of salvation as the jailer did (Acts 16:34).
