Paul’s arrival at Macedonia (Philippi)
Paul and Silas went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia because the Holy Spirit did not allow them to speak the word of God in Asia. In continuation of their missionary work, the apostles came opposite Mysia and wanted to go to Bithynia, but they were forbidden by the Spirit of Jesus. So, from Mysia, they came to Troas.
At Troas, Paul had a vision. In the vision, he saw a man from Macedonia calling him to come and help them. The man said, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’ Paul and Silas left Troas and went to Samothrace. The following day they went to Neapolis and to Philippi, the capital of Macedonia.
Paul’s conversion of Lydia
At Philippi, Paul and Silas preached about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. On the Sabbath day, they spoke to the women who came to worship at the place of prayer, which was outside the gate by the riverside.
One of the women was called Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a worshipper of God and a seller of purple goods. She believed the good news, and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour. Lydia and her household were baptised and they became Christians.
Lydia said to the apostles, ‘If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.’ The apostles stayed in Lydia’s house during their missionary activities in Macedonia. Lydia provided food and accommodation for them.
