Nobody promised this Christianity thing would be easy. How would you respond if you were arrested merely for changing the life of a broken, hurting person? This is the outcome for Paul and Silas as they end up in the inner prison of the Macedonian city of Philippi merely for rescuing a slave girl from her demons. Doesn't seem fair. Do they complain? Curse and get bitter? What we find them doing in the middle of the night is actually unnerving and unnatural. We find these two guys in chains, yet they are singing praises and declaring the glory of Jesus in this dark dungeon. God again executes a miraculous release, yet this time the prisoners do not leave. That is interesting--- freed prisoners who do not run away. By the end of the story we have another whole house of people who have been rescued by Jesus and a growing church in this city. The praise from prison becomes contagious and shows all of us how we can respond to the worse of adversities we face in life.
