In Acts 8 we find the Holy Spirit telling Philip to head south out of Jerusalem. As he does he meets a man from Ethiopia who was a eunuch who the scripture says in
Acts 8:27 was “a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship”
It goes on to say:
Here is what he was reading
There are so many things to see in these few verses. We see Philip’s obedience to the Holy Spirit, the eunuch awareness that he needed help in understanding the scripture (a teachable spirit) but as I awoke this morning and said good morning Father I immediately heard the verse above.
So what do you see in Acts 8:32? What flooded my mind this morning is the portion that says, “He was like a lamb that is silent before those who sheared him— he never even opened his mouth.”
Jesus lived this verse out. It’s one thing to read and quote scripture its quite another to live it. How did Jesus respond when he was beaten, spit on and scourged? He didn’t say a word.
I’m not going to develop this thought that is best left to the Holy Spirit to show each of us what he is saying to us personally.
“He never even opened his mouth”.
