Something I gave thought to yesterday, was this girl was a slave twice. She was a slave on earth, in the physical and she was a slave in the spiritual realm.

Acts 16
18 And this she did for many days. (So she ran around hollering behind Paul for MANY days.)

But Paul, greatly [d]annoyed, turned and said to the spirit, “I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her.” And he came out that very hour. 19 But when her masters saw that their hope of profit was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to the authorities.

So the people that owned the girl, knew she was possessed and were making money off of her. So Paul setting her free, took away their cash cow. They now have to find legit honest work to do.

Setting people free will come at a cost. We as Christians must be willing to pay this price for lives.
