“As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, “Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized?” And he gave orders to stop the chariot. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.”
Insight: It is such an amazing feeling to know that God does not require us to reach certain level of study or accreditation to become part of His kingdom. All that He requires is an obedient heart with the desire to seek Him and to grow in His ways. The eunuch knew about Jesus for perhaps only hours but once he had made a decision to commit his life to Him, he wanted to be obedient and took the first step by declaring Jesus as Lord and Savior through baptism.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for paying the price on the cross for me and for giving me access to eternity through your sacrifice. Please help me remove doubts that might keep me from taking action upon your calling in my life. I want to be obedient to your Word as Philip and the eunuch were for your glory. In Jesus Name, Amen.
