A Few Minutes A Day

By Doug Bing, Washington Conference president

Have you ever visited a church with acoustics that made you stop and listen in awe?

A few years ago, I had the chance to visit a church in Jerusalem that made any singing group sound amazing. The group I was traveling with had no claims of being professional singers. Yet as we started to sing an old hymn, the acoustics of the old church made us sound heavenly. Other visitors paused to listen or even to join us. It seemed like God drew near and the Holy Spirit was present as we reflected on our personal walks with God during this time of singing.

I wonder what the acoustics were like when Paul and Silas sang from the depths of the prison in Philippi. Acts 16:25 says that they were singing and praying at midnight and that the “prisoners were listening to them.” Regardless if the acoustics were good or not, it is apparent that during that devotional time the Holy Spirit was with them. Acts 16 continues to tell of the earthquake and how the prisoners were so impressed by the power that no one wanted to leave. They stayed and before the night was over the prison keeper and his entire family were brand new Christians.
