The Eunuch’s Journey

I love reading this story.  It is such a blessing to read how the Lord speaks to hearts in different ways.  There are so many beautiful stories in God’s word, which is the best of best books to read.


​And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

  Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

  Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. 

 And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

  And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

  The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

  Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? 

And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

  And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

  And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Acts 8:26‭-‬39 KJV

How did the Lord touch your heart?

 It was on a Sunday night for me.  I was under deep conviction all day.  When the preaching was over Sunday night, I stepped out and to the alter I went. Praying, I confessed my sins and gave my heart to Jesus.  How forgiving and how merciful our Lord is!

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:8‭-‬9 KJV

  1. I love testimonies! Thanks Robbie.
    I was saved at Skyline Highschool Teachers Cafeteria in April 1973. I had a guest speaker come give a mini seminar to my Drama class. He had been an old college buddie and he had changed! When I asked him what made him change his lifestyle so “dramatically”, he said Jesus Christ had changed him. Well, I saw a wonderful change and I believed in the power of Jesus Saving Grace. I said I sure wanted some of that! Isn’ t the Lord just the Best!!!! I had to be shown an example. He knew what I needed.
