A Keswick Chapel prayer for you today, June 8, 2020.


Passage: “Now those who were scattered went from place to place, proclaiming the Word. Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah to them. The crowds with one accord listened eagerly to what was said by Philip, hearing and seeing the signs that he did, for unclean spirits, crying with loud shrieks, came out of many who were possessed; and many others who were paralyzed or lame were cured. So there was great joy in that city.” (Acts 8:4-8)

Thoughts: Due to the persecution of the Church by Saul, the Church was scattered. The Apostles stayed in Jerusalem and Philip could have stayed, may be and yet Luke tells us that he went to Samaria. Do you think he chose to leave or did he run? Based on the way Luke presents the actions of Philip, I believe he went. Luke tells us, “Philip went down… and proclaimed the Messiah to them.” This indicates that he went with purpose and determination to share the Good News of Christ Jesus! What do you think?

Prayer: “Sending God, thank you for not allowing Your Church to get stuck in Jerusalem, limited to one location or bound to one era. Instead, Your Church fits and functions in any and every context, spread across the world and yet joined in heart and will, united in one and the same Spirit. Thank you that I am part of this amazing community of faith. Amen.” (Belgic Confession 27)

Blessing: “May the grace off the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14)

Blessings, Pastor Robert
