In this week’s message, Pastor Phillip teaches on several concepts we see displayed here in Chapter 8, namely the laying on of hands, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the consequent manifestation of that baptism through a miraculous gift of the Spirit. He also addresses the sin of Simon the sorcerer who had proclaimed faith in Christ but wanted to purchase with money the power to lay hands on people and receive the Holy Spirit. Later on, Pastor Phillip points out the flexibility with which Phillip was able to pivot into the different types of ministry that God called him to. We discover God using him in a different way after his faithfulness in Samaria, being used to share the gospel with an Ethiopian eunuch who would later impact the Nation of Ethiopia for Christ.
