Day 122, May 2 - Acts 8

Click here for today's reading

39-40 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.
But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea.

Such an amazing story! The eunuch saw him no more and went on his way rejoicing, no mention of being confused he just rejoiced. And can you imagine what Philip must have felt?!? He found himself at Azotus. What does he do? He preaches the gospel to all the towns. How do we get back to the glory of the early church?

  1. Acts 8
    4 All those who had been scattered by the persecution moved from place to place; and wherever they went, they weren’t afraid or silent. Instead, they spread the message of Jesus.

    36b-37 The Ethiopian: Since there is water here, is there anything that might prevent me from being ceremonially washed through baptism and identified as a disciple of Jesus?
    Philip: [If you believe in your heart that Jesus the Anointed is God’s Son, then nothing can stop you.
    The Ethiopian said that he believed.]
