The Gospel Spreads to Africa

30 Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked.

31 “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Acts 8:30-31

It has been said that there are no coincidences in God’s universe. Philip miraculously appeared in the desert and approached a chariot that had an Ethiopian leader reading Holy Scriptures. Forget for a moment where he was reading because that adds to the drama of the moment.

God had appointed Philip to go to the desert. He didn’t know what he’d find there but went anyhow. The Ethiopian was heading to Jerusalem to worship so he was probably a Jew.

Those are not chance occurrences. Those were divine appointments.

These occurrences happen every day if we look for them. They may not be as dramatic as this, but they do occur.
