Saving the Whole House
"Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household." Acts 16:31
Some think that because their parents believed in Christ as their Savior they are Heaven-bound, too. But Acts 16:32 says Paul and Silas “spoke the word of the Lord to (the Philippian jailer) together with all who were in his house.” Because the head of the house received Christ, everyone under his care had opportunity to hear and respond. God’s promise is that when the pivotal person in a family comes to Christ, it can lead to the salvation of all in the household.
