As Paul traveled back to the churches he had helped start on his first missionary journey, God added to his plans. Paul had many credentials during his life, but his most cherished achievement was, he was a faithful follower of Jesus. He finished well. 2 Timothy 4:7-18
God gave Paul a vision. “We call it the Macedonian Call.” God is faithful. Paul immediately responded to the call of God. He was faithful.
As was his custom, Paul preached and taught about Jesus. He and his companions traveled to the river where prayers were customarily made.
The disciples spoke with the women who had gathered for prayer. One woman listened to the words of God; her name was Lydia.
Lydia was a seller of purple garments. She was in the baptized garments business.
God opened Lydia’s heart to hear and understand the Gospel.
Lydia believed. John 6:44
Lydia was baptized. Matthew 28:18-20
Lydia exercised her spiritual gifts. She served. She was hospitable. Romans 12:1-8; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
Lydia was faithful.
Lydia ministered to the traveling preachers and gave them a place to stay.
Lydia Biblically lived out her Biblical faith.
