Songs in jail? Rejoicing after being wrongfully arrested? The story of Paul and Silas in prison is an interesting look at a miraculous rescue and unique opportunity to share the Gospel. In this message, consider musical methods and situations that we might sing or make music. Describe how God wants to hear from us, even if we don’t feel joyful. Any word or song we give Him is precious because He loves us. And we can rejoice to know that He is always with us, wherever we are!

This story does not tell us that we always need to “put on a happy face” and ignore sorrow. Paul and Silas prayed and sang because they knew that God was with them, even in a dire and unfair situation. They clung to the hope they had in Jesus, and others noticed that. Not only did they eventually get released from prison, but the jailer (and likely other prisoners) recognized that something was different about these men and listened to them share the good news of Christ. We can take comfort knowing that God is with us always, and He wants us to spread His love to others.
