P. 48

“Look, here is water,” said the Ethiopian. “What should keep me from being baptized today?”
We can just imagine how happy that man must have been after hearing the story of salvation! Jesus loved him and had come to this earth and died for his sins. Now
He was in heaven preparing
a home for the Ethiopian and would come someday soon
to take all of God’s people to heaven. Could there possibly be any better news anywhere in
the world?
Then something else
happened at that moment. The Bible says that “when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away.” The Ethiopian didn’t see him again, but went on his way
singing and praising God.
