A Thought For Your Christian Journey:

 

And He Arose And Went

 

Acts 8:26-27 26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. 27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, 
 

If there is one theme that is consistent in Acts chapter eight it is the fact of going.  We notice in verse four that the Church was scattered through persecution.  Put simply, that means they left and went.  We notice in verse 14 that Peter and John came to join in the Samarian Revival being service by Philip.  Then again in verses 26-27 we see Philip willingly yielding to God's direction to even go again.  Clearly, one must go if one will win with the Gospel.

Just today I was talking with one of our dear Church saints about how we sit in our homes and offices and speak to the same people from day to day.  People we have already tried to witness to and continue to share with as God gives us opportunity.  However, we often feel the urge, realizing the command, to go.  But how do we go when we know we have already gone?

I remember reading about one prominent pastor who felt the same urge and came up with an answer that worked.  He went to a local book store and joined a book club.  He joined this club, not so much for the books, but for the opportunity to get around new people in a way that would allow him to one day share his faith with them.  Taking this into consideration the opportunities are limitless.  If we will go?

So the question is simple and its answer is all around us.  If we would be obedient, if we will respond to the spirits urge within us, then we will go.  We will find a way and we will go.  This might require a bit of a stretch and a sacrifice, but the results are potentially eternal in their perspective.   How will you carry the gospel to the world all around you?
