We saw a few days ago that Philip was willing to be redirected as an angel of the Lord told him where to go. Was this a one-time event, or was this characteristic of Philip – that he was always willing to be led by God? Acts 8:39-40 gives us a look into the core of this servant.
“And when they (Philip and the eunuch) came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea” (Acts 8:39–40).
Clearly, Philip was a man always ready for divine direction. Wherever “Philip found himself” he was under divine command, and there was one thing on his mind; THE GOSPEL! This raises the question with each of us; do we feel compelled to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit and a burden to share the gospel wherever God puts us? You can be sure that those places where God leads us will be where He is already at work preparing the soil in hearts so the gospel is received.
