Empowering Transformation: Philip’s Encounter with the Eunuch

In a poignant confirmation service held at Mutithi Parish, the congregation delved into the transformative encounter between Philip and the Eunuch as recounted in Acts 8:26-40.

Philip’s Surrender to the Holy Spirit

The sermon highlighted how Philip, empowered by the Holy Spirit, ministered to the Eunuch who was grappling with the Scriptures he was reading.

Four Cardinal Questions

The Eunuch, deeply moved by Philip’s guidance, posed four pivotal questions that reflected his desire for transformation:

  1. Understanding the Scriptures: “Do you understand what you are reading?”
  2. Seeking Guidance: “How can I understand unless someone guides me?”
  3. Interpretation: “About whom, I ask you, does the prophet say this, about himself or about someone else?”
  4. Baptism: “What prevents me from being baptized?”

Dependence on the Holy Spirit

Confirmation Candidates were encouraged to emulate Philip’s reliance on the Holy Spirit when grappling with understanding the Scriptures. The message emphasized the importance of seeking divine guidance and allowing the Holy Spirit to illuminate the Word of God.

As the service concluded, attendees were inspired to surrender to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, trusting in His transformative power to lead them into deeper understanding and spiritual growth.
