Scripture and salvation

RE Verse reading–Acts 8:26 -40 (day six)  “Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet”  (vs30)  God has a plan of salvation.  A path of life for those seeking it.  It culminates in Christ.  It declares itself if baptism.  The content is communicated through Scripture.  The Ethiopian eunuch’s experience  (Acts 8) perfectly portrays the way forward.  Begin with the Bible.  Read it.  Ask questions.  Receive instruction.  Trust Christ as soon as the Scripture makes the path of faith possible for you.  Be baptized as a confession and sign of your salvation.  How little did the eunuch realize when he first picked up the scroll of Isaiah that it would lead him to Christ and joy.  How little do we realize it still has this power for us.  “Faith comes through hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ”  (Romans 10: 17)  “From childhood, you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Jesus Christ”  (1 Timothy 3:15)
