Acts 8:35 – Explaining the Good News of Scripture

Context: The Ethiopian eunuch is reading Isaiah. Philip approaches him, asks him if he understands what he is reading, and the eunuch replies, “How can I, unless someone explains it to me?”

Acts 8:35 – “Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.”

Observations:  The Spirit of God uses the Word of God through a man of God to bring salvation to a human heart (cf. 1 Pet. 1:23-25).

Application Prayer:  “Lord, empower the Holy Spirit to help me open the Word and explain the good news about Jesus.”
