DCLM Daily Manna 10th June 2018 Devotional by Pastor Kumuyi

Topic: Self-Discovery

Bible Text: Acts 8:26-40

Key Verse: “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” (Acts 8:31).

Message; In the passage under consideration, the Ethiopian eunuch came to realisation that he did not know the Scriptures even though he had been going to Jerusalem to worship. For him, it was a religious expedition devoid of righteousness. Even though he was pious, his spiritual eyes were still blind. He discovered his ignorance of God’s word only after Philip’s interpretation of the passage he read.

He loved God and His word. The Holy Spirit sent the preacher in order to help him understand the Scriptures and to tell him what he had to do to be saved. It was during the encounter that his eyes opened to the Scriptures. The man was humble. This simplicity of heart enabled Philip to have a successful and fruitful discussion with him, which ultimately resulted in his salvation.

There are many lessons to learn here. We must always listen to and obey the voice of the Spirit of God as Philip did. We must not conclude that certain people have no need of the gospel because of their position in the world or their wealth.

Besides, salvation comes to man by grace. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8).

It takes the working of the Spirit for man to be convinced about his sinful state and for him to yield his life to Christ.

Thought for the day: Discover your spiritual whereabouts and align with your Maker.
