John Bradshaw - What Would You Be Waiting For?
The jail keeper in Philippi woke to find the doors of the prison wide open. When Paul told him no one had run off, the jail keeper realized God was doing something in his life, and so, "He called for a light and sprang in and came trembling and fell down before Paul and Silas," Acts 16:29.
This was a man who might have wanted to move slowly, what about his job? What would people say? He lived in a heathen city, why would he want to identify with the small, unpopular sect but God had touched his heart and he didn't stop to dwell on potential negative repercussions, he moved quickly.
If God is speaking to your heart, do the same, move quickly, waiting to surrender or be baptized, or waiting to go through an open door. Just what would you be waiting for? When God calls, be like the jailkeeper and move right away. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written
