At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household.
The part of this verse that jumped out to me was at the very end:

God give us the boldness to invite people into your family
