The Power of ONE

Read Acts 8:26-30

26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. 27 And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28 and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” 30 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?”

  • God called Philip to go to this man. Has God ever called you to go to someone? How did that go?
  • God called Philip to go to someone very different than himself, a person that the Jews would not of allowed in the Temple, a person that had a very different culture, a person that Philip’s people were more than likely racist against. Has God ever used you in the life of someone very different than you?
