Memory Verse:1 Peter 3:21
And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience.
After sailing to Macedonia Paul arrived in the city of Philippi. When he found a group of women gathered beside a river praying he told them about Jesus. One of the women was Lydia, a businesswoman who sold very expensive purple cloth. When Lydia heard about Jesus she was baptized. Then everyone in her household was baptized too. Lydia was so happy that she invited Paul and his friends to stay at her house.
