The Holy Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and walk along beside the carriage.”
For the people who were followers of Christ, they were living in unprecedented times. Acts chapter 8 starts with there being so much persecution against Christians that they had to scatter to preserve their lives.
With the world in the state that it’s in now, the church is again unable to gather together in the way we are used to, but we will be flexible and dynamic! More than ever, there is such a need for me to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit to know who I need to be “walking along beside” as Philip did in this passage.
The person I am to walk beside may be a person of great wealth who needs help interpreting what they see and read, like the Ethiopian in this story. Or they may be someone who just needs some practical help in life, or someone to pray with.
Lord, thank you that You have put some people on my heart this morning that I need to find new ways to walk beside in these unprecedented times.
