In this part of the book of Acts 16 we look at the individual life of a woman named Lydia. We see who she was and where she was spiritually, and how she was a worshiper of God. As she listened to Paul speak, God opened her heart to listen to his words. She then believed and was baptized, and right away started to bear fruit. We see that Lydia was not far from the kingdom of God, similar to what is said in Mark 12 up until Paul came and spoke, and as we study this passage also see how it is effective for us.
