Lydia’s Conversion in Philippi September 22, 2016

Here are my thoughts on Acts 16:11-15.

Summary: In this passage, Paul and his companions traveled from Troas to Philippi. On the following Sabbath, they went to a nearby river to pray. There, they shared the Gospel message with several women, including Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from Thyatira. The Lord enabled Lydia to accept the Gospel message, and she and her household were baptized.

Thoughts: I anticipate meeting Lydia in the next life and learning more about her. How did she become a dealer in purple cloth? Did others in her family pursue a similar line of work? How often did she travel between Thyatira and Philippi? How did she come to worship the God of Israel – especially since she lived far from Judea? What were her thoughts and emotions when Paul shared the Gospel message with her for the first time? Was she able to strengthen the church in Philippi and spread the Gospel message to others in that city?
