    Contributed by Austin Mansfield on Jun 3, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    The jailer’s decision was not any easy one. But despite the difficulties that lay ahead, he realized that the God who would bring him to those difficulties would also bring him through them.

    Jobs were hard to come by. He was a grown man, with a wife and children to provide for. He had been an OK farmer when they lived in the country — even managed to put away a little money for them to live on after the move to the big city. But he had no marketable skills to speak of. He wasn’t more

    Only Jesus can make a jailhouse rock as he puts a song in Paul's heart and a spring in the jailer's step.

    In a 1957 movie, Elvis Presley made prison look like a rip roarin’ time when he sang “Jailhouse Rock.” The truth is Jesus made a jailhouse rock long before Elvis did and it was no staged production. It was a real-life event punctuated by an earthquake, a jail break, and a midnight more

    We never really know how strong our relationship with God is until we face a severe trial. The darkest times -- our midnights --are the times when our faith is proven. Paul & Silas discovered God was enough at midnight.
