Everyone knows a little bit about God. Sometimes we just need help to fill in the blanks.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn about a guy named Philip and an Ethiopian treasurer. Philip was a leader in the early church and he liked to tell people about Jesus. One day, he was walking along the road when a carriage rolled by carrying an important person. That person was the treasurer for the Queen of Ethiopia. That means he was responsible for the queen’s money. He was an important guy! As the treasurer rode by, Philip heard him reading from the book of Isaiah found in the OT of the Bible. So, Philip ran up to him to talk to him about Jesus. See, the Ethiopian knew some stuff about God but he hadn’t heard about Jesus yet. So, Philip sat down with him to help him fill in the blanks. He told him all about Jesus and that he died for the sins of all people. Right then and there, the Ethiopian put his trust in Jesus and he even got baptized! We can learn from Philip. When we share Jesus with others, start from what they know and then help them fill in the blanks so that they understand all that Jesus has done for them.
