This is the passage of Scripture the eunuch was reading: “He was led like a sheep to the slaughter, and as a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he did not open his mouth. In his humiliation he was deprived of justice. Who can speak of his descendants? For his life was taken from the earth.” The eunuch asked Philip, “Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about, himself or someone else?” Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus.
Philip meets someone who is asking questions of life and is needing an answer. Philip takes this 'open goal' of an opportunity and immediately points the Ethiopian Eunuch to Jesus.
We are surrounded by folk who wonder about the meaning of life itself, let alone wondering about the cost of living. Will we be bold enough to point people to the real answer, to Jesus.
Have you noticed that our readings, as we have started 2023, are the Plymouth and Devonport theme and vision of Find One. Here's a motto: Find One in 2023.
Prayer. Lord Jesus, may I notice those around me who need you. Amen.
