From Samaria

Today's Bible Passage

ACTS 8:5-13

Meditation

When the Christians were scattered, Philip, who had emerged into prominence as one of the Seven, arrived in Samaria and preached there.  This incident of the work in Samaria is astonishing because the Jews had no dealings with the Samaritans (John 4:9).  The quarrel between the Jews and the Samaritans was centuries old.  
 
The fact that Philip preached there and that the message of Jesus was given to these people, shows the Church all unconsciously taking one of the most important steps in history and discovering that Jesus is for all the world.  We know very little about Philip but he was one of the architects of the Christian Church.  
 
We must note what Christianity brought to these people.  
 
  • It brought the story of Jesus, the message of the love of God in Jesus Christ.
  • It brought healing.  Christianity has never been a thing of words only. 
  • It brought, as a natural consequence, a joy that the Samaritans had never known before. Christianity radiates joy.

Life Application

Become a modern-day Philip and take Jesus everywhere you go because you live in a world of need. Jesus is still the answer!

Praise and Prayer

“Dear God, thank You for raising up people like Philip over the centuries. Now, please raise up new ones like him who will take the message of Your love to the world full of anger, bitterness, and broken hearts. Amen!"
