The Slave Girl

Today we take a look at Acts 16:16-24, where Paul and Silas encounters the slave girl in Philippi. The slave girl followed both Paul and Silas for many days, proclaiming that they were servants of the Most High God, proclaiming the way to salvation. Paul became annoyed and commanded the spirit to come out of the slave girl. This, then led the slave owners to get angry at Paul which then led to them being sent to prison. In this passage, we look at Paul’s response to the girl’s condition and what it means, as well as what else we can take from this encounter in how we associate with others, even if they profess Christ, but don’t walk in the ways of Christ.
