Sunday Worship | December 4, 2022


Call to Worship | 
Judges 5:3

Confession of Faith | Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting.
Amen.

Scripture Reading| Acts 8:26-40

 

26 Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert place. 27 And he rose and went. And there was an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasure. He had come to Jerusalem to worship 28 and was returning, seated in his chariot, and he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29 And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go over and join this chariot.” 30 So Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. 32 Now the passage of the Scripture that he was reading was this:

“Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter
    and like a lamb before its shearer is silent,
    so he opens not his mouth.
33 In his humiliation justice was denied him.
    Who can describe his generation?
For his life is taken away from the earth.”

34 And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?” 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this Scripture he told him the good news about Jesus. 36 And as they were going along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What prevents me from being baptized?” 38 And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. 39 And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord carried Philip away, and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. 40 But Philip found himself at Azotus, and as he passed through he preached the gospel to all the towns until he came to Caesarea.

 

 

 

Sermon | The Service of Philip

(sermon outline | study guide)

Sermon Series Title:Church Beginnings
Sermon Series Summary: From now until around Easter, we will be in the book of Acts, covering chapters 1-12. After the Ascension of Jesus Christ, we see the NT church being born by the power of the Holy Spirit. Through this series, we see the church being built, the kingdom going forth, and the gospel being proclaimed.

Summary
We see Deacon Philip continue in his ministry as he presents the gospel to an Ethiopian eunuch with great wealth and authority. The eunuch most likely visited Jerusalem and was not allowed in the inner courts of the temple. By the working of the Spirit, Philip presents the gospel of Christ to him which is the hope of restoration and redemption.

Reflection Questions

1. Have there been times when you’ve felt like the Lord was leading you nowhere for no reason? How did you navigate that season?

2. How do you relate to the brokenness of the Ethiopian eunuch?

3. How does the gospel minister to his and our brokenness?

Prayer Topics

A Spirit of Thanksgiving
In 1 Thess 5, we see Paul exhort the church to give thanks IN all circumstances. We don’t give thanks for the result of the circumstances or only during specific times. We are called to give thanks IN all of life. We don’t pretend that it’s easy or we’re blindly happy at all times, but we give thanks because of who God is and what He has done for us. Let us take this season and give thanks unto the Lord.
A Spirit of Advent
The season of advent is a time when we reflect on Christ’s first coming. God the Word took on flesh, lived the perfect life for our righteousness, died the death for our atonement, and was resurrected for our victory. It is also a time we reflect on the truth that Jesus will come back again and restore all things. Let us meditate and pray on these two truths of our salvation, and let’s pray for healing, strength, and hope.
