How fast do you respond?

Acts 8:29-30 (KJV) Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 30 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

When God commanded Philip to witness to the eunuch, Philip ran to him. How fast do you respond? Do you put up excuses? Do you ask God for more confirmation that he really wants you to do what he commanded? When God commands, just do it.

Believe first, then be baptized

Friday, January 9th, 2004 at 4:03 pm

Acts 8:36-37 (KJV) And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

The Ethiopian eunuch could not be baptized until after he first professed his belief in Jesus Christ as Son of God.
