One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message.
Lydia’s heart was opened, and then her home. So let us pray that hearts can be opened to the Word, and the message of our lifestyle – in street witness, in youth-work and camps, or in conversation, wherever the gospel is told out today. The Lord’s direction is to make disciples, baptising them in further witness, and teaching them all his commands.
