“The eunuch asked Philip, ‘About whom, may I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?’ Then Philip began to speak, and starting with this scripture, he proclaimed to him the good news about Jesus. As they were going along the road, they came to some water; and the eunuch said, ‘Look, here is water! What is to prevent me from being baptized?’ He commanded the chariot to stop, and both of them, Philip and the eunuch, went down into the water, and Philip baptized him. When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing.” (Acts 8:34-39) It is of course one of the great stories from the Book of Acts, illustrating just how far afield the Gospel has been spread. From Jerusalem, to Judea and Samaria and now to the very ends of the earth the Good News is going forth (Acts 1:8), this story perhaps being the pivot which will now move the narrative to Paul. I love verse 39 with Philip so carried away (literally?!) and the Ethiopian overjoyed. Is it any wonder? The reach of God’s love overwhelms Philip and the eunuch is overcome that that love even includes him. Are you ready to share “the good news about Jesus?” Are you ready to spread the joy which only knowing Jesus can bring with even the least likely candidates?
