Philip Obeys God

God wants us to tell other people about Jesus. Our Bible Reading today tells us about Philip, who shared the Good News about Jesus. An angel told Philip to go down a certain road that went from Gaza to Jerusalem. Probably Philip did not know why God was sending him there, but he obeyed.
On that road, Philip met a man who was a government official from Ethiopia. This man was reading from the book of Isaiah. The Holy Spirit told Philip to stay with the man. The man from Ethiopia did not understand what he was reading. So Philip explained that Isaiah was talking about God’s Son, Jesus.
The man believed what Philip told him about Jesus. So Philip baptized the man, who “continued on his way home. He was very happy” (verse 39b). We need to obey God and tell others about Jesus, too. Who will you tell today?
