The Converts: All Kinds of People

Acts 16:11-34

In Acts 16, we meet three different people who each had a unique encounter with the gospel and were changed. In these three encounters, we recognize that God uses different methods to reach different kinds of people. For example, in Philippi, Paul and Silas saw converts from different social and economic backgrounds come to faith through their witness and testimony, even though the guts of their message was the same for all: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” God calls us to be faithful to deliver His gospel message to all kinds of people, regardless of their past, their appearance, or their present circumstance.
