YOUTH GROUP LESSON 82
Paul and Silas went to Philippi, where they met Lydia and some other believers. As they walked through the city, a slave girl who was demon-possessed kept following them. As she followed them, she announced that they were followers of God and on a mission to proclaim salvation. After several days, Paul was annoyed and cast the demon out. The girl’s owners had Paul and Silas beaten and cast into prison. They spent the night in prayer and praising God, and the prisoners were listening. Suddenly, an earthquake broke the doors and the chains, effectively releasing all the prisoners. The jailer, realizing this, was about to kill himself. Paul stopped him, announcing that all the prisoners were still there. The jailer responded to this by asking what he must do to be saved. The jailer and his household believed in God, and they were baptized. Word came the next morning that Paul and Silas had been released. Paul demanded that their rights as Roman citizens be honored. After visiting with Lydia and the believers, they went on their way.
