“Most Likely To Believe.”Lydia.Acts.16:14

While studying the background concerning the church at Philipi I came across a gem from Bob Deffinbough.

Acts.16:14.Whose heart the Lord opened.

Lydia was the one person in this chapter whom we might suppose to be the “most likely to believe.” We would expect the scripture to say,He opened the jailer’s heart.But Lydia was a God-fearer,an Old Testament saint.You would think for a person like her conversion was virtually automatic.But this woman…the Lord opened her heart to believe.

If God must open the heart of the one person in our text who is  “most likely to believe,” then surely he must open the hearts of all who believe and so he does…Acts.13:48.And when the Gentiles heard this,they were glad,and glorified the word of the Lord:and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
