Missionaries (2)

Acts 6:5 tells us about seven men who were chosen to help the early church in Jerusalem. One of those men was Philip.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that an angel told Philip to go to a road that led to Jerusalem. There Philip met a man from Ethiopia. This man was reading from the Old Testament book of Isaiah, but he did not understand what he was reading. So Philip explained that the verses were talking about Jesus.
Philip told the man more about Jesus. Then in verse 36b the man said, “Look, here is water! What is stopping me from being baptized?” Philip baptized the man, and the man “was very happy” (verse 39b).
Philip was a missionary. He shared the Good News about Jesus with many people. Wherever Philip went, he talked about salvation through Jesus. We should be like Philip. We should share Jesus with people we meet today — the cashier at the grocery store, the person who delivers our mail and our neighbors.
