Tune In.

today's reading.
Acts 8:4-39    Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word...

think about it.
How did Philip's mission fulfill Jesus' command in Acts 1:8? What was the response (8:6-8)? What did Simon want (8:9-12)? How did he try to get it and what was the result (8:18-24)? What did the Holy Spirit do for these believers (8:14-25)? Contrast Simon's faith with the Ethiopian man Philip met (8:26-38). How has God's Word led you to respond in faith?

the blog.
Philip was tuned in to the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit and as a result we see him accomplishing much for the Lord. This was particularly evident to me in the account with the Ethiopian eunuch. The Spirit tells Philip to go over and talk with this man. Philip immediately responds and engages the man in conversation about Scripture which, in turn, results in the man receiving Christ. (You've gotta love that!)

So how tuned in to the Holy Spirit are you today? What can we do to make sure that, like Philip, we're wholeheartedly seeking and following the Holy Spirit's leading and direction? Tami W.
