She Persuaded Them
After Lydia and her household were baptized into Christ, Paul and Luke and their companions went and stayed with her. She had to gnaw a little on them to get them to come over. So often when we have an idea of how we could minister to someone, we try only once. If they are just a little bit hesitant we back away. We give up. We let ourselves off the hook. Maybe we need just a little bit more of Lydia's tenacity. Maybe we have some persuading to do.
