Today’s devotion is based on Acts 8:35, “Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.”
Today we read about Philip and the eunuch. Philip starts sharing the good news of Jesus by addressing the eunuch’s area of interest. God gives us a hundred openings to talk about his greatness with others: a sunset, the birth of a child, a serious illness – any number of occurrences of daily life. As you drink deeply from God’s Word and are filled with his Holy Spirit, just like Philip, Paul, and all other faithful followers of Jesus, you will speak the words that are needed to be said.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, fill me with your Holy Spirit to use the opportunities you set before me today to witness to you, by what I do and by what I say. Fill my heart to overflowing with your word so that I have the right words on my lips to answer the hope I have in you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
