Being Attentive As A Learner

Acts 8:29-39

The Eunuch paid close attention to the passage he was reading, even though he did not fully understand. God saw the genuineness of the Eunuch’s attitude, so He sent Phillip to go and expound the word to him. He was willing to learn so he could grow spiritually. No matter how mature a Christian has grown, he knows very little of God. No matter the level of revelation a Christian has seen, every encounter with God brings the Christian to uncharted territory of spiritual experience. The Christian that wants to mature spiritually will have the heart ready to learn. He will keep his mind open for new revelations from God, ready to follow into deeper experience with God. At the same time he will judge every revelation by the revealed word of God in the Bible. He knows that some of the extra-Biblical revelations that people claim these days are un-Biblical. He needs a discerning spirit.

Point of Emphasis:        The Eunuch was open to learn, even from Phillip, a stranger he never met before.

Prayer Point:            Oh God, give me a heart that is ready to learn and a mind ready to understand.
