So, Philip ran to him and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet and asked,
“Do you understand what you are reading?” Acts 8:30
I came across a young man who had a King James Version of the Bible with him.
I asked him, “Hey, what are you reading?” Seeing the version of the Bible, I then
asked him with a smile, “Do you understand what you are reading?” This led into
an opportunity for further discussion and the realization that this young man was
dealing with legalism issues. I then asked him if he would like to sit with me to
talk more about this. Fortunately, I have learned from my mentors that I am only
able to give out what I have and nothing else (Note: this may not be much, but
thanking God! Lol). I was then able to traverse the scriptures to explain the grace
of God in a way that hopefully ministered to this young man. I also invited him to
come join my local church body which he said that he would do. I am grateful
that the Lord has promised to write His laws onto our hearts and imprint them on
our minds. Praise God that His promises are true and real!!
