This Philippian jailer asked one of the most important questions in life, one we've all asked: what must I do to be saved?
Paul and Silas were at a critical juncture. They had the opportunity to tell this man anything. They gave a concise, accurate, and conclusive answer that highlights God's free gift of salvation: believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved. If there were any other requirements for salvation, Paul would have said so, but he didn't. Also, if there were more requirements, then Paul didnt tell him which means he really missed an opportunity to bring someone to Christ.
The one thing that saves is faith in Jesus Christ...His death and resurrection.
This jailer was on the verge of committing suicide and going to hell. Paul's message brought peace and comfort in a time of great fear.
Because Paul and Silas preached faith in Christ alone, the jailer was saved.
When people ask us about our faith and how to be saved, we should remember what Paul said. You may be saved already and going through hard times. Maybe you're having doubts about your faith. Maybe you aren't saved.
#Hurricaneirma is about to wreak havoc on FL. Don't out put off salvation.
2 Cor 6:2 "(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)" God loves you and you can trust Him for salvation. He is powerful enough to save you and keep you saved forever, no matter how much you fall and no matter how hard you fall. He keeps you saved, forever.
John 6:37 - All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
John 10:28 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.
