Our part

RE Verse reading–Acts 8:26-40 (day three)  “How can I (understand this passage) unless someone explains it to me?”  (vs 31)  An angel spoke to Philip but Philip spoke to the eunuch.  Wouldn’t it have been easier for the angel to go straight to the eunuch?  Cut out the middle man?  Maybe, but it is not how God works.  Part of the Father’s love for us (His grace to us) is to include us in His meaningful work–the reconciliation of people to God.  Our part is to tell the story of Christ.  Our part is to be available to the Spirit.  Our part is to ask questions.  Our part is to interpret scripture,  to help the new believer take the first step (baptism) and, sometimes, to go on to the next assignment.  There is a great plan at work in the world.  The beautiful and powerful drama of redemption!  What we need to remember is that we have a part to play!
