RE Verse reading–Acts 16:25-34, Acts 17:1-34 (day six) “At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized” (16:33) Salvation plants love in the human heart. “We love because He first loved us.” “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” Acts 16 tells this truth in a tender story. As the jailer listened to the good news of God’s love, he suddenly became aware of Paul and Silas’ needs. They were wounded. The risk of infection was high. At great personal risk, He took them out of prison to his home so that he could care for them, he could LOVE them. And they returned the favor. Having washed their wounds (skin) he became the recepient of baptism, a symbol of washing for wounds (soul) How eloquent the gospel is when we love! Friends, do we wash wounds? Do we heal or do we criticize?
