Let the Nations Be Glad

  • In Acts 8, we're told that the new Christians scattered throughout the land, preaching the word about Christ. One of them, Philip, was called to go on the desert road from Jerusalem to Gaza, where he met an Ethiopian eunuch who had come to Jerusalem to worship. Philip witnessed to this man and baptized him in a nearby stream. That man went on to be instrumental in taking the word to Ethiopia, helping establish Christianity in that country.

    Some may wonder why Philip left Jerusalem, where he had the opportunity to work with many Christians and others eager to hear the word. But this passage illustrates that when he left his comfortable surroundings, the Lord used him in a great way.

    On Sunday, Pastor John van Dinther read this passage in Acts 8, as he challenged members of Faith Bible Church to join him and the others from New Life Stockholm in reaching Sweden. Who among us will leave our comfortable surroundings and go? Will it be you?
