Bible Story:

Acts 8:26-40

As Jesus’ disciples went out preaching the gospel, Philip encountered an Ethiopian eunuch on his way back to Ethiopia after having worshipped in Jerusalem. Philip joined the eunuch in his chariot and shared the truth of Jesus with him. This eunuch believed the gospel and was baptized into the family of God.


New Creation

Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
