An Unexpected Encounter

Acts 8:26-39  (ID: 3330)

Just when it seemed Philip’s preaching was becoming useful, God sent him to the desert. Philip obeyed—and as a result, he met an Ethiopian eunuch with pressing questions about Jesus. If we believe that God directs our steps, will we view every situation as an opportunity to share the Gospel? Challenging us to make the most of our circumstances, Alistair Begg instructs us on the prerequisites for sharing Christ: an inquiring mind, a prepared heart, and a ready answer.


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.
