The Seeker and the Sent One

Acts 8:26-40  (ID: 2147)

Turning to the story of Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, Alistair Begg explores two examples of hearts open to God’s work. The eunuch humbly desired knowledge, showing an openness to Scripture, discipleship, and the revelation of the Spirit. Philip, meanwhile, displayed sensitivity in obeying God’s prompting and serving the eunuch. God used their responses to bring about salvation and baptism. Whether seeking or sent, are our hearts open to God’s will and work?

Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch

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.
