Acts 8:34

So the eunuch answered Philip and said, "I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?" NKJV
It's amazing how Christ leads others to Himself; a cosmic coincidence that the eunuch reads a prophet prophesying of Him with some confusion when a Christian decides to come over and ask how well he understands.

How curious do you think he was when Philip first came up, and how amazed as he came to believe in Christ and realized their entire meeting had to have been an act of God?

Even the portion of scripture he had a question for, and the very question he asked! It might as well have been, "Is the prophet talking about himself, or Jesus Christ?" with the size of the door God opened for the eunuch to be saved. The opportunity certainly couldn't have been presented more obviously to Philip, and he didn't have to do anything other than show up and talk.

It wasn't Philip's work that saw the eunuch born again, but the will of God. I need to understand that there isn't anything I can do to lead others to Christ except be faithful to God, so that when the time comes He works in someone's life (John 6:65), He might see fit to use me in some small way to deliver the visible means of their revelation to a personal relationship with Christ.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
