The treasurer of an Ethopian queen has heard from the Jews living in his country of the great God at Jerusalem, and he has gone there to worship. Philip accepts the gracious invitation, unfolds to him the way of life, baptizes him, and sends him on his way rejoicing. Philip has been preaching in the great city of Samaria. Thousands come to hear him, and hundreds have been converted. The Holy Spirit directs him to leave this crowded city and go into an uninhabited place. It is easier to prepare a sermon and preach it to a crowd than to approach an individual and preach to him Jesus. There are more difficulties in the way of reaching the individual than of proclaiming the gospel to the crowd. It takes more courage and wisdom to do personal work than to make public addresses, and, sad to say, many preachers take more delight in public addresses than in private soul-winning.
