Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
Journey with the Risen Christ
We can identify two major claims represented:
1) God puts us in the right place at right times:
In all things that may come up in our lives, it is for a specific reason. We may face a certain trial, temptation, or something lively that can impact our lives. However God does this to affect our lives in a positive manner. As we saw the eunuch had experienced the presence of Philip at the specific time when he was in his chariot. God had also told Philip to go over to the chariot, and Philip was able to introduce the love of Christ into the eunuch’s heart.
2) The uplifting of the Holy Spirit
Once the eunuch had met Philip and they were walking, the man spotted water and wanted to be baptized. We can experience that the eunuch was spiritually grown by the first encounter of knowing God. Right after he was baptized we can see that he was rejoicing, and haven’t seen Philip since. This shows the spontaneous love of Christ and his rapid love that grows in our hearts constantly.
Dear Lord, Thank you for constantly reminding us of your great love. Please strengthen us to identify your true grace and to understand that all things are from you. Please allow us to greatly experience the Holy Spirit and live according to thy will. In Jesus’ Most Precious Name. Amen
