“Geography” & “Topography”

Acts 16 proclaims the encounter of Paul and Luke with Lydia, a “devout woman in the purple-dye trade.” She was wealthy.

We ponder:

We went along the river, outside the gates of the city, as it was the Sabbath and this was a customary place for prayer.

We ponder:

Lydia listened to us and the Lord opened her heart to accept what Paul was saying.

“Geography” matters: the river is a perfect setting for prayer.

“Topography” matters: the “shape” and “characteristics” of preaching are important.

Paul proposes Jesus. The Lord opens Lydia’s heart to accept Jesus.
