Acts 8:30-33

30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.

31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

32 This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading:

“He was led like a sheep to the slaughter,
and as a lamb before its shearer is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
33 In his humiliation he was deprived of justice.
Who can speak of his descendants?
For his life was taken from the earth.

One response to “Acts 8:30-33

  1. God put scripture into his hands, gave him a thirst to understand it, then put Philip in the way so that he would be near to the seeker. God also gave Philip understanding and Philip obeyed his calling and the leading of the Spirit to meet with this man. This man was powerful in his country and there is no telling the impact that he was able to have when he returned.

    God sovereignty is on display and the way that He moves and shapes men and nations is what makes Him God.
