In the early days of the Gospel’s spread, the Apostle Philip was sent by God to deliver privately what he had been preaching publicly. On a road leaving Jerusalem, he encountered an Ethiopian man in a chariot who wondered about the identity of the “Suffering Servant” in Isaiah. He needed Philip to share the Good News. Philip’s explanation of Christ and His sufferings led the man to an appointed decision—which is what we all face when we encounter the Gospel message.
26Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south4 to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place.
