He was a man who believed in God but did not understand about Jesus. He even traveled from his home in Africa all the way to Jerusalem to learn more. He read Scripture, but he did not really understand it. He needed help.
At the same time, there was a faithful follower of Jesus who was busy telling people the good news of salvation. When he told the story of Jesus, many believed him and became followers also. God had this man go to a desert road — a road the African was going to be traveling.
And they met on that road: the follower of Jesus and the man who wanted to know more.
So what does that have to do with you reading this article? I believe God still works to connect believers with those seeking answers. So if you are a believer reading this, God has placed you in a neighborhood for a reason. You may have friends that are looking for Jesus. Or there may be someone you work with who will be open to the story of Jesus. Just like the man from Africa was.
