Philip was in the zenith of his ministry in the big bustling city of Samaria. The Spirit had directed him through persecution to that area. Now He commands him with the help of an angel to go from the palm trees of Samaria to the barren sands of the desert. And this major interruption came into Philip’s life for the sake of one person. If that doesn’t show the heart and love of God, I don’t know what does. But part of why God could use Philip in this way is because in his heart he had already crossed a huge prejudicial barrier by ministering faithfully to the hated Samaritans.
Is your heart open today to anyone God may call you to minster to? He may just interrupt your routine, or even shake your world for the sake of one lost soul. Will you go?
Lord, help me to be willing,
