Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved; you and your household. [Acts 16.31]

In this passage we hear Paul’s response to the Philippian jailer. To fill in the story, Paul and Silas went to Philippi, preached the gospel, caused a riot, were whipped, and thrown into jail.

Jesus had come to be one of us, perfect in relationship with God, the Father. Jesus lived his life as example that Man could walk with God in perfect unity. Then, he traded that life to fulfill covenant promises made so that we can have that same life of unity with God, the Father.
