Wow, bold letters.

Lydia had her heart open THEN she heard what Paul had to say. (Did you like my big bold capatilized THEN ?)

What Paul said didn't open her heart...God did.

That's not what it says. Read it again.

14 A woman named Lydia, from the city of Thyatira, a seller of purple fabrics, a worshiper of God, was listening and the Lord opened her heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul.

The Lord opened her heart to respond to the things spoken by Paul....That's what the bible says. Otherwise she would not have the ability to respond to what Paul was saying.

You really aren't listening are you?

God opens hearts through the preaching of the Gospel. Now read it again:

She was listening....God opened her heart....and she then responded.

You can preach the gospel to someone until you are blue in the face...and unless God opens their heart they won't get it.

She was listening to the GOSPEL. As I said, God opens hearts through the preaching of the Gospel.

That's exactly what happened here.

Are you deaf?

God opens hearts through the preaching of the Gospel.
