God's Holy Fire: 'Led to Another Mission'

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

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 suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Philip, however, appeared at Azotus and traveled about, preaching the gospel in all the towns until he reached Caesarea.
— Acts 8:38-40 NIV

Key Thought

When the Holy Spirit leads and guides God's servants, people come to Christ with great joy. Then the Holy Spirit can lead God's servants to new places to share the great news of Jesus, as Philip did after telling the eunuch about Jesus.

Today's Prayer

O Lord God, the Almighty God of every nation, tribe, language, and people, bring the joy of your salvation to our tired world and lead your servants to the people and places that are hungering and thirsting for your grace. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
