When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing. Acts 8:39
In the book of Acts God was bringing about revival in Jerusalem. There were healings and conversions taking place, and it was a place of great joy! Then all of a sudden an angel of the Lord instructed Philip to go to the desert. In the desert Philip came across an Ethiopian eunuch. As it appears God led Philip there for the sole purpose of meeting this one man. He shared with him the good news of Jesus, and before you know it says they come upon some water and the eunuch is already asking about being baptized. They went down to the water together, the enuch is baptized, and then whoosh, Philip is taken away. It says the eunuch did not see him again, but that he “went on his way rejoicing”!
Wherever God takes us, for a season, or for a day...would we be open to the encounters he has for us, would we be obedient to share the good news of Jesus with others, and would we be about carrying with us this spirit of joy. The same spirit that Philip brought with him from Jerusalem, and that now was posessed by the eunuch! Let us be challenged to take it with us wherever we go!

There is nothing quite like a family reunion. Getting together with those who haven't seen for a long time, sharing food, talking about the good 'ole times...it does that heart good doesn't it?
