Just heard a heart-stirring sermon from Acts 8:25-40 (to my remembrance, this was one of the 'funnest' sermons I both prepared and preached at Church a number of months ago) where the preacher faithfully provided 3 points of being an effective servant of Christ as modeled by Philip in the text:

1. Be completely surrendered to the will of God.

2. Trust completely in the sovereignty of God.

3. Be totally consumed with preaching Jesus Christ
.

Then he concluded with this statement which I want to post for your meditation. Really, contemplate this:
"Ninety-five percent of the preachers in the world are in America preaching to only five percent of the world's population."
O may God raise up faithful men to preach Christ just as Philip did wherever Christ calls them.
