A Wonderful Good Day In the Lord


Our Pastor has been preaching out of Acts and today he discussed ch. 8:25-40. This is about Phillip being told by an angel to go toward Gaza and to take a particular route. This route leads him to encounter the Ethiopian Eunuch who is riding in a chariot and reading out of Isaiah.

This is a beautiful example of the sovereignty of God. God sent Phillip this way specifically so he would see the eunuch and the Holy Spirit impressed upon him to engage him in conversation. The Lord had already moved in the eunuch's heart and he was open to the gospel! He asked to be baptized right then and there.

The other thing our Pastor pointed out was that Phillip went immediately. He did not delay when the angel told him to go. God uses those that are available. Just as the disciples, when called, sold their possessions and went, Phillip did likewise.

Afterwards we had lunch and a wonderful time of fellowship. Nothing sweeter!!

Colossians 3:16

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Amen Sister, awesome day indeed. Whenever Pastor is preaching, time flies, I'm thinking he can't be finished. I look at my watch and it has been a whole hour. I absolutly love it. I would have never dreamed God would have us in the same church but I am glad he does, because no one would believe me if I told them how blessed this new church plant is! It's an answer to prayer.
