“How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Acts 8:31
Have we ever struggled to understand just what the Bible is trying to tell us? Do we sometimes realize that we need Someone to explain God´s Word to us? If so, where do we turn?
Our first reaction could be to turn to other people. We would find an expert on the subject or someone we trust. But Jesus said that He was leaving this world so that He could send us the Spirit to be our Go-To Source. People can help at times, but only as they are able to assist us to depend more upon the Lord. Many people would usher us into their way of thinking or into their herd of followers. But the kind of instruction we need comes from more than just a man. Philip was able to share the God of the Scriptures because the Spirit was moving and speaking through him.
Only the Spirit of God can show us the Father and the Son. So wherever we do go, let us make sure the Holy Spirit is present! Let us accept the encouragement of God-fearing workers, but only as they teach us to look above our world! Let us look for the right kind of Someone to explain to us the mysteries of God! Let us seek the movement and instruction of the Spirit of God today!
Let us hear from You! Send Your Spirit to explain what You have for us today! Never let us settle for anything that does not throw us further upon You, seek Your Presence or love You more! Let Your Spirit teach us of You now we pray!
