Women in Acts (9)

One day Paul and his friends met a servant girl. This girl had a spirit from the devil that gave her power to tell what would happen in the future. Some men owned this girl and made lots of money when she told about the future.
The servant girl started following Paul and his friends. Verse 17b tells us, “She kept shouting, ‘These men are servants of the Most High God! They are telling you how you can be saved!’” Paul commanded the evil spirit to come out of the girl. The men who owned the girl were upset because they couldn’t use the girl to make money any more. So, they had Paul and Silas beaten and thrown into jail.
We don’t know what happened to the servant girl after this. I am sure she must have been happy to be free from the evil spirit. I hope that she learned about Jesus and became a Christian.
There are many people in the world today who are following the devil. Those people need to know about Jesus and His free gift of salvation. Tell someone about Jesus today.
