follow the leader

Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads out there. Since I have an awesome dad of my own, I know what a difference you guys make. I hope you're enjoying the day. Our reading for today is part of the reading in worship today. We read over the last couple days how persecution drove the church away from Jerusalem, but God used that scattering to spread the gospel. Today we see where the Spirit leads Philip next. There's more on this story in today's sermon, which will soon be posted on our website.

Blessings on your evening,

Acts 8:26-31
26Then an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Get up and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” (This is a wilderness road.) 27So he got up and went. Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of the Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of her entire treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28and was returning home; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over to this chariot and join it.”

30So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah. He asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31He replied, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to get in and sit beside him.
