Wouldn’t you love to be known as a “Servant of the Most High God.” (16:17), by everyone- including demons? I would love that label!!
Did you notice how, even though Paul and Silas were Christians, a demon still bothered them? (vs 18) Being a Christian doesn’t except you from demonic activity. They are still around, bothering.
Learn from Paul on how to get rid of one bothering you! “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ ….” (vs 18)___________, (fill in the blank) i.e. “to get away from me!.”
We have the same authority over demons as Paul had, because we too are servants of the Most High God.
