Acts 8 describes Philip’s encounter with an Ethiopian on a desert road. Philip was an “ordinary guy,” content to stay in the background, yet he was used by God to share the good news of Jesus to a man who later returned to his corner of the earth to impact others. We can be used in similar ways if we will obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit that is proactively entering the lives of others and speak the good news of Jesus.
Earnest prayer is critical to the success of the Gospel. Pray that the Gospel will spread rapidly and be honored. Ask for God-arranged encounters and clarity of speech. Pray to overcome spiritual paralysis caused by fear. The apostle Paul prayed for each of these things in his letters the churches, and the evidence that God answered Paul’s prayers is found in the book of Acts.
