RE Verse reading–Acts 8:26-40 (day two) “Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Go south to the road. . .that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.’ So he started out. . .” (vs 26-27) I love this story. I do not love the reality it reflects. The Spirit of God has the right to interrupt my day(s) . . .to substitute His plan, schedule, priority for my own. He expects me (like Philip) to accept this leadership with a glad and willing heart. This is not Philip’s first rodeo. Acts 8 has already presented our exemplary brother with an “opportunity to be flexible.” When persecution flooded into Jerusalem sending all but the apostles fleeing for safety, did Philip lose his job? Probably. Did he have to stop being a deacon? At least in the way he previously understoood the task. His reaction? Walk with the Spirit! See opportunities! Speak of Jesus! Being faithful and being flexible are often the same thing. For Philip. For us.
