As [Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch] rode along, they came to some water, and the eunuch said, "Look! There's some water! Why can't I be baptized?" He ordered the carriage to stop, and they 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 never saw him again but went on his way rejoicing.
O Father, thank you for revealing your heart so clearly. I am so glad that you are the God who loves to throw parties for sinners who come to salvation. I am thrilled to know you rejoiced with the angels when I accepted your gift of Jesus as my Savior, offered my heart to you as I was baptized, and was cleansed by the power of the Holy Spirit. On my down days, dear Lord, please remind me to tap into the joy of that salvation. When others come to Christ, use me to welcome them and rejoice with them. I want to be one of your children who parties like the angels when lost sinners are saved and brought into your family! In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
Unstoppable! is written by Phil Ware.
