Power to change

IMAGINE

An angel suddenly appears in front of you and says, "Go to . . . and tell . . . about Jesus." How would you react?

READ

Acts 8: 26-40

Angel: Philip, go south (v. 26)

. . . and Philip did as he was told (v. 27)

Angel: Go over to that carriage (v. 29)

. . . and Philip did as he was told (v. 30)

Because of Philip's obedience, a top government official became a Christian. Have you ever told God that you're willing to obey him, to go where he wants and do what he wants? Yes . . . well . . . but . . .

How do I know it's God telling me to do something special or unusual?

  • It doesn't happen all the time. Just be ready
  • God won't tell you things he wants someone else to do . . So don't say to a friend "God has told me you should . . ."
  • Check it out with an older Christian.
  • God won't ask you to do things that will hurt other people, cause trouble or go against anything he says in the Bible.
PRAY

Lord, help me to be willing to go where you want and to do what you want.
