New Testament In a Year: June 26 – Acts 8:26-40


Acts 8:26-40
(26-40) Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch
Through an angel, God called Philip and told him to go to a certain place. Philip didn’t ask why. He didn’t ask for any more details. He didn’t complain that he was too busy doing something else. He simply rose and went. Philip had no idea that an Ethiopian eunuch was reading the Scriptures in search of salvation and a Savior, but God knew. If Philip had not answered and obeyed God’s call, perhaps the eunuch never would have been told the good news about Jesus and been baptized.

We do not always know why God tells us to do something or calls us to go somewhere, and that’s okay. We just have to trust Him. God sometimes allows things to happen in our lives that may not necessarily benefit us, but are beneficial to others who we may only meet once or who we may never meet at all. We do not exist for ourselves alone. We also exist for others, and ultimately we exist for God.

Favorite verse: (39) And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing.
