The Philip cycle in Acts 8 comes to an exciting conclusion with the salvation and baptism of an Ethiopian court official. The passage events take place in the southernmost part of the Holy Land in Gaza. The gospel message will also now be carried into Africa in fulfillment of Christ’s word to His apostles that their witness would go to the ends of the earth. The Holy Spirit takes center stage in this text and demonstrates how He moves in the church through promptings and guidance. Our responsibility is, like Philip, to be ready to listen and respond.
Acts 8: 26-40
