Regeneration, Justification

From Gaza to Glory (Acts 8)

 “From Gaza to Glory”

 

Acts 8:26-40

 

Here is an exciting account of the salvation of a man who while traveling on the road to Gaza became a traveler on the road to Glory.

1.  The Worth of A Soul (v.26)

God sent His servant Philip into the desert for the sake of one individual whose heart had been prepared by the Lord.

 

2. The Witness of A Servant  (vv. 27-30)

Philip unlike Jonah “arose and went” in prompt obedience to the Lord. Leaving the success of a fruitful ministry in the north, Philip ventured into the isolated wilderness and quickly drew near the eunuch, unconcerned about this man’s great authority and aware of the brief window of opportunity to reach this man with the Gospel. Unashamedly, he engaged the eunuch in spiritual conversation asking him a question that exposed his ignorance and opened the door of opportunity to witness. Not silent, Philip preached Jesus to him as he done to the crowds in Samaria. (v. 5) Philip — good in personal and mass evangelism alike.

 

The Depths of God's Forgiveness (2 Chronicles 33)

The life of King Manasseh is recorded in the Scriptures in two places, 2 Kings 21 and a more complete account in 2 Chron. 33. Of all the kings of Judah, there were perhaps none more evil than Manasseh. Tradition tells us that He was probably the one who gave the order to have Isaiah the prophet sawn in two. (see Heb 11:37) Apart from Hezekiah being his father, there is very little evidence to indicate that he was even linked with God's people. And yet he was.

Four Ways That God Saves (Ps. 107)

One of the most effective tools in the advertising industry is the personal testimonial. Marketers will often utilize this strategy to create interest in a particular product that they want the public to try. One reason why it is so effective is because it relates in a very personal way in which an item has changed someone’s life—in some cases dramatically and often irrefutably. Just as the testimonial is very effective in the world of advertising, the personal testimony is very effective in communicating how God has changed us. We are reminded in 1 Peter 3:15: “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear”.  We should always be ready to tell others why there is a difference in our lives.
