“About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them” (v25). Paul and Silas had seen many people to come to Christ in Philippi, yet their efforts had resulted in them being viciously beaten and thrown in prison. Amazingly, they spent that time praying and singing, completely confident that God was in control of the situation. Their faith was the same, whether they were in prison or had been miraculously by an angel.
“What must I do to be saved?” (v30). The jailer desired the authentic faith he saw in Paul and Silas. In challenging times, our trust in God proclaims that Jesus is real and alive in us.
